EJ on final production of CD

Posted by Eric Jerardi Tuesday, June 19, 2007

Greetings all–I just wanted to let everyone know that the new CD, Restless will be released a little later than we originally had planned. –details to follow. We have been giving different mastering labs a chance to master one song to see who sounded the best and the process took a bit longer than we thought it would. We have decided on Ken Love of Master Mix from Nashville. His tone and energy was far and away the best of the bunch. For those of you who don’t understand what I’m talking about–here it is in a nutshell: after the songs are mixed but before they are released in any form, they are sent to a mastering lab where the order of the songs are arranged, the time between songs, maybe a fade out, but most importantly the overall E.Q. or tone of the entire CD is adjusted. You would be very surprised how different the final product actually sounds when a talented mastering engineer puts his touch on the music. In the case of Restless there were huge differences from the different labs and techniques. Most sounded thin or squashed, but Ken’s old school way of mastering sounded fat and punchy with tons of attitude. Needless to say, we are all very excited.



I wanted to also thank the House of Blues Chicago for having us play this past weekend. We had two great shows (sold out on Saturday), and a hell of a lot of fun. We met so many nice people from all over the world who came in for the Chicago Blues Fest. People from all over the country, Europe and even Gibraltar were at our shows and we laid the wood to each and every one of them.



Rock on and enjoy the new CD.



Eric
