Casey at the Bat EP - Live Recording 

On August 17, 2012 a few friends and I recorded a live 5-track EP.  We rehearsed once two days before and went in and cut everything together in the same room at the same time, rather than layering track-by-track in the more traditional production sense.  I wanted to capture the raw energy and nuances of songs with minimal technological interference. We took 2-3 takes per track and chose the best performances, respectively.  It was a blistering humid 95 degree evening and we couldn't run the fans and A/C in the studio for the fear that the sound of the machines working would be picked up on the mics.  At least we had cold beer!  This acoustic project was a significant departure from the music I was making at the time with my band(s).  It was a little passion project that I kept for myself and never released or promoted, until now.  I didn't know it at the time, but the Casey at the Bat EP set the table for pushing me out of my comfort zone and laying the foundation for my musical pursuits as a solo artist.
