New Dweezil Zappa CD!

Posted: November 14, 2014 in Uncategorized

DRUM TRACKS ARE DONE for the new Dweezil Zappa CD! 12 songs. His first CD in 10 years. Joe Barresi got unbelievable drum sounds. We used different combinations of drums, cymbals and mics on EVERY song. Sooooo much fun!!!DweezilStudio_Day1_057

The CD I’ve been working on with Keram Malicki-Sanchez was released last week, and we celebrated with a show in Toronto. It was an amazing night! The executive producer of the record is Alex Lifeson, who also played guitar on 3 songs. We were lucky enough to have Alex sit in with us on 2 songs at the show! It was an incredible experience getting to play with him.
