September missive from The ‘Scoe

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.
