_For whatever reason, that line from The Beatles came into my head the other day. I hadn’t been listening to Sgt Peppers, nor had I heard ‘A Day in the Life’ recently; but for whatever reason, it stuck. I think it may have been because it seems that almost every newscast these days are talking about the hardships facing so many Americans and so many people around the world.
In the past few weeks we’ve found out that almost half of the population of the US can be classified as either poor or low income. We hear about food pantry shortages, homelessness, hunger, injustice around the world and I know that sometimes I think, ‘Wow, this sucks, but really, what is my 10 dollars really going to do?’
And so we get to ‘I read the news today, oh boy…’
I don't know about the rest of you, but I am seriously excited about the new album, Chroma. They've been playing shows around the Southeast and there have been some initial discussions about the album release show.
Of course to have an album release show, you have to release the album.
This is where the fun stuff comes in...
This is a picture of a recent mastering session at Patchwerk in Atlanta:
Matt was sitting in the same chair that T.I. and Beyonce recently sat in (at different times) during their sessions. Chroma is going to sound amazing, trust me.
Finally, the guys started shooting the music video for Shelter Me last Wednesday in Atlanta. I'll see if we can post some previews soon.
Are you excited yet? I am.
