Since the late fall, I’ve been in the studio recording and mixing a new CD for Rush with Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Stone Sour) producing. Recording was completed at Allaire Studios in Shokan, New York during November/December 2006. I mixed the CD in the Neve 88R room (Studio D) at Ocean Way Studios in Los Angeles.
Experiencing their immense musical talent and personal integrity over the course of an entire CD was truly inspirational. And Nick is such an enthusiastic, focused talent as well — a rocker through and through! A small snippet of the first single ‘Far Cry’ is posted at rush.com …. enjoy the ‘hemispheres chord’ … heh heh heh.
As a side note, Rush’s R30 DVD has been nominated for a Juno Award for DVD of the Year.
Dolores O’Riordan (ex- singer/songwriter for The Cranberries) is scheduled to release her first solo effort, titled ‘Are You Listening?’ on Sanctuary Records. The first single ‘Ordinary Day’ was produced by Dolores and me with some additional production and recording from UK’s Youth.
I mixed the CD in its entirety at Mixland – Music & DVD and recorded a number of tracks at studios in Canada and Ireland. Along with Dolores, my good friend Dan Brodbeck produced most of the CD and did a chunk of recording as well.
Many, many more things up and coming. Stay tuned for more …
