For the last nine months, I have been deep into recording Melissa Axel‘s debut record. I’ve participated as a tuba player, as a co-writer on a song (for which I also sang background vocals), as a production assistant, as an executive producer, and [very briefly] as an assistant engineer.
Tuba music is just getting too darn complicated.
Today we’re back in the studio finishing the song “Merry-Go-Round” by Melissa Axel, which features tuba as well as piano and voice. We just finished editing (comping) and tuning the tuba part with producer Justin Peacock of The Hook Factory. Thankfully, there was practically no tuning necessary, and the track is sounding fantastic!
I’ll be sharing some session videos later, so stay tuned …
Can’t wait to share this record with the world!
