Back in August, I was called to fly to Chicago to record Christian rockers Skillet for an upcoming release for Apple iTunes. Along with the band, I produced the 8-song live-off-the-floor session and it went live on iTunes this week here.
The recordings were completed in a single day, only possible because this band really does a great job playing their material live. I brought the recordings back to Lerxst (Al Lifeson’s and my studio in Toronto), where I mixed. Once again, Andy Vandette at Masterdisk put the final touches on in mastering.
So far, this release has met with considerable success and critical acclaim so let’s hope more bands want to showcase themselves in a controlled live environment.
