It’s been a pleasure knowing and working with my fellow Taurean Geoffrey Mays at Soaring Heart studios for the past 15 years. He’s truly been like a godfather and guitar guru who has helped me grow as a musician and human being, and I will miss having late night jam sessions with him. Last night we worked on a project that’s been on the to do list, an albumof songs my grandfather George Jacob Martini liked to sing. We tracked “Spanish Cavalier,” “Red River Valley,” “Streets of Laredo,” “Hard Times,” “Big Rock Candy Mountain” and “Battle hymn of the Republic.” I think we got some good takes and I look forward to getting some mixes that I can work on from Nashville. Ultimately we’d like to have a CD for my grandma’s 90th birthday in January, we’ll probably press 100 copies, so let me know if you’d like one. Also a big shout out to Jesse Greenlee who has been an amazing drummer to work with the past 6 months. Extremely talented with time and style this guy is already a legend and I feel fortunate to have worked with him.
