New demos are in the Studio

So, we left Keith Houston's (KHP and OZ) studio in Dunn, NC around 10pm last night after eight hours of tracking two demo tunes. Both of them have traditional "Quickesque" characteristics with a twist. Casey helped me write them, so they are more guitar oriented than my previous stuff. "Tennessee" sounds like John Hiatt meets Toby Keith meets Jackson Browne (very cool song with a flood of guitar work, screaming organ, and killer harmonies). Second, "I Told You Everything" is a perfect hybrid of the Subdudes, Bonnie Raitt, and Tracy Chapman... It's a classic sound with a simple groove and a clever melodic line. Thank you, I love my work (haha... I'm conceited, confident, cautious and nervous).

Now, the songs are being sent to Nashville to Gary Nicholson. He's my favorite producer right now. Hint: he gave us "Nothing Personal", "Room to Breathe", and "Cost of Living". These are my favorite Delbert McClinton albums. He produced them and wrote a majority of the works. Check out his site: http://www.garynicholson.com and you will be amazed of what he's done. He's like the best Grammy Award winning secret in Americana Music. Very excited about this one y'all. It's the beginning stages of a project that's very special to me.
