I recently recorded a demo track titled "The Illusionist"; the music was written by myself [as well as all guitars], the lyrics and vocal melodies were done by Australian vocalist Rachel Pedri, drums were recorded by Bob Holz, bass by Jamie Mallender, and keyboards by Mistheria. The guitars and drums were recorded at Strangeland Audio Recording Studio [engineered by Scott Patnode] in February and Spring 2011, while the remaining parts were recorded at various times/places in Spring/Summer 2011. Mixing was also done at Strangeland. This is my first professional recording. On January 21st, 2012, a remixed version of "The Illusionist" was released w/ new vocal tracks and minus the keyboard intro.
The response to the song has been fantastic; people genuinely like the track, and have been highly complimentary of the individual musicians performances, as well, particularly Rachel`s vocals! You can hear the track at the Youtube, Soundcloud and Reverbnation links above, as well as the links below ["As Above", So Below"]. For more information on the musicians involved in the recording, go to their individual websites listed below, as well.
Rachel and I are currently working on ideas for more tracks; hopefully it won`t take as long as last time to get results, but hey, things take as long as they take.
The songs we`re planning will be as good as, if not BETTER than "The Illusionist", so stay tuned!
Thanks for listening! Any comments, questions, critiques, etc, please don`t hesitate to get in touch!
