Summer 2018 Lots of Musical goings on going on.

The Bottle Rockets next record titled “Bit Logic” has been recorded (in St. Louis), mixed (in Brooklyn) and mastered (in Nashville) and is slated for an October release on Bloodshot Records from Chicago.  This is the 7th record I’ve produced for the band and I’m super excited for you to be able to hear it soon.  Go to their site for pre-order info.

In 2014 I got to meet Sarah Borges through the guys from Girls, Guns & Glory.  I produced her EP “Good & Dirty” which was released in 2016 and since then we have played a lot of shows together.  Me playing her songs and Sarah backing me on mine.  We’ve got 10 tracks for her upcoming album “Love’s Middle Name” completed and we’ll start mixing soon.  This record is to be released in October too. Go here to pre-order Sarah’s new record.

Spanking Charlene’s next record titled “Find Me Out” is also in the works in Brooklyn at Cowboy Technical Services.  We’ve got all the songs recorded and are one day of overdubs away from mixing on that one too.  It’s a barnburner for sure.  Fans of Spanking Charlene and their alter ego the Sad Bastards of Brooklyn are gonna like it.

Also working on records with Girls On Grass, Nate Schweber, HEAP and Mary Lee Kortes.

I’ll also be mixing Devil Dog Road‘s upcoming record.  The new Squirrel Nut Zippers record “Beasts of Burgundy” that Mario Viele and I mixed at Cowboy Technical has been on the iTunes Jazz chart!

My band will play 2 special gigs July 12 & 13 supporting the great Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ at Hill Country in DC and Manhattan.

Keep an eye on the gigs pages as I play monthly with the Mark McKay Band and Spanking Charlene.

More gigs with Sarah Borges coming up this fall and if you don’t have it already check out the Roscoe Sampler on the Store page.

Last Chance Records of Little Rock, Arkansas has picked up my Lakeside album for distribution as a CD and online via iTunes and HDTracks.  I’ll be heading to Nashville this month to play at their Americana Music Association events.  Details on the Gigs page.

As I’ve detailed here our recording studio Cowboy Technical Services Recording Rig has gone through some big changes.  We moved to a beautiful sun drenched space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn with 17 foot ceilings and have implemented some major upgrades.  We went back to our handmade in Chicago Neotek console, had it re-capped.  Parked a 75 year old 6 foot Steinway baby grand piano upstairs and in the biggest quality jump of all we replaced our A to D/D to A convertors with what we feel are the best sounding ones ever to be made, The BURL Audio Mothership.  Many of you remember that we had 2 channels of BURL before.  Now we have 24 in and 32 out.  Let me tell you, these convertors sound thrilling.  We look forward to showing you just how thrilling they are.
