What a day! Today we rehearsed for the first time with the band. On the album will be Greg Sankovich on keys, Dan Feiszli on bass, Russ Gold on drums, and of course we have Saul Kaye on guitar. Other than Saul, I’ve never met any of these guys before but that didn’t matter. We clicked immediately and the sound that came out was absolute magic.
Unbroken is a lot of things and to hear the music evolve is an incredible experience. There is a strong chemistry that exists between the folks playing on this album. They clearly love playing together and there was a ton of laughter. It felt like home.
The next three days will be spent at Fantasy Studios to lay down drums, bass, and keys. I’ll have more updates tomorrow.
Before I call it a night, I have to share with you something a dear friend told me. Her young son said, “You have to lose your balance before you find your balance.” Right on. Here’s to balance.
