This is George Shalda, and his gigantic dog that looks like a bear! George will be the one in charge of recording this album in his studio BearDog (now you know why it is called like that ;)!) I had the pleasure of working with him today in a different project, and I can’t say enough good things about him or his studio. Great vibes, beautiful attitude, and awesome work environment! We are recording on January 15th through the 17th!!!! How exciting!!!!!!
I officially met Richard a year ago during Thanksgiving, when I came to spend the break in Austin. He has been playing with me ever since I moved to this city in July. My first impression of him is that he is hilarious. He looks kind of serious, but don’t be fooled! His jokes are sharp and he is just too funny. I will be ever thankful for the interest and enjoyment he showed when I first introduced him to my music. He made me feel confident and motivated me to work harder on this album. I am not only in love with his playing, but also love how dedicated and enthusiastic he has been with this project and the music. He has a beautiful sound, is very attentive to details and makes everyone he plays with sound great. I admire all the heart and hard work he puts into everything. Along with Andrew Friedrich, Richard has been my right hand in producing the final touch of the music. I feel so grateful to have him and his bass in this record!
