Ri-ˈkȯrding

I have always been interested in recorded music. As a boy, I sat in front of the speakers of my family’s console record player to listen to LPs and the radio. Then it was 45 singles in my room. Then cassettes (my brother’s Walkman). By the time I got a dual cassette player, I had learned to play a few instruments. I used the dual deck to make my own track over track recordings. I wrote and recorded a few songs that way in high school. Then I moved on to a 4 track cassette recorder. Next was in a studio with a big reel-to-reel and a nice board. Then an upgraded studio space with ADAT. Since that time, it’s all been computers.

During the Covid-19 Pandemic, I have been writing and recording some ideas for music I hope to release in 2021. When the pandemic is deemed over, I will be turning my attention to KentuckyJam.org, a non-profit where I serve as President and act as mentoring producer. So far, I’ve helped produce two albums through KentuckyJam.org. One for guitarist/singer/songwriter Rus Powell. The other for singing-songwriting-married-couple During the pandemic, KentuckyJam.org is pretty much shut down. However, the search is open for the next artist to support. You can find out more about that at www.kentuckyjam.org.
