Finally, Blake Mundell’s new album Eventide is here! It’s been a long time coming, but the wait is over. I’m so proud to have worked on this project. I’d like to share with you some samples of my favorite moments from the album on my work page. If you like what you hear, feel free to head on over to Blake’s Website and pick up a copy of the CD for yourself!
"Provider" Single by Blake Mundell on NoiseTrade.com
I want so share a track that I am very proud to have worked on with my great friend, Blake Mundell. The song is called "Provider", and it is available for free this week only on NoiseTrade.com. You should grab a box of tissues before you listen to the track because because it will probably bring you to tears. Oh, and you might even need a few hand towels if you decide to read his digital memoir, Little Mountain. It is a compelling, honest telling of his story and how it has shaped his music. It is fabulously written, and I highly recommend reading it! If you’re interested, make sure you start at Chapter 1.
I’m so excited that the album is scheduled to drop in April! I’ll post more reflections on the making-of once it is released.
I’m excited to be in the middle of working on a new record with my good buddy, Blake Mundell. We’ve already laid the foundation for the whole record, and now we are focusing on two singles that we will release very soon! We’ve been spending long days in the studio, but it’s been so much fun. I’ve had such a great time working with Blake, Paul Eckberg, David Labruyere, and Tony Lucido. I’m so grateful for all of the musical talent that has gone into making this record solid! We should have a final release date within the next couple of weeks. Check back soon!
In the mean time, Blake has some pretty cool youtube videos you might enjoy.
I stumbled upon this when I was going through some old recordings that I did a few years ago. I performed this piece when I was still studying classical guitar in music school. I don’t study classical anymore, but it’s nice to re-live the memory!
Just wrapped up the last string tracking session (slash pizza party) with some of my friends for Ross Bridgeman’s EP. We’ve finally hit our stride with these recordings, and they’re starting to take shape beautifully. This is my favorite part of the record making process because all of the creative blocks have been shattered, and our ideas are flowing rapidly. It’s such a privilege to work with an artist like Ross and players like Shawn and Kevin who bring such stellar ideas to the table. It’s like a heavenly trifecta of creative torrents. Thanks guys for making this night such a blast.
Just wanted to share a project that is very close to my heart. Over the past several years, I’ve developed a close relationship with Rev. Kevin Twit and the kind folks of Indelible Grace Music, whose mission is to resurrect old hymn texts by setting them to new music. The IG hymns speak into the depths of my heart in ways that a majority of modern church music simply cannot. I am so thankful for Kevin’s commitment to IG Music, as he has helped so many people understand the Gospel, and he has given so many more a heart for the historic Christian faith.
This past summer, IG hosted a hymn sing at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. They filmed and recorded the event in hopes to make a live DVD and CD. A couple of months later, they launched a Kickstarter to fund the project, and their backers contributed nearly twice IG’s financial goal. This overwhelming success made for an exciting DVD and CD release. Both are now available in the IG online store, and the CD is also available on iTunes. I was privileged to edit the raw recordings for the CD, and I recorded the voice overs for the DVD at my studio. I hope that you will check it out!
