On another daily grinding drive to work, Nicholas smashes his fist on the dashboard in frustration, revealing a button he'd never seen before. Pushing it, he discovers his car can fly...
I made this album entirely myself, with the sole (and very important) exception of the guitar work by Amirabbas Amiri. I met Amir years back on a Kevin Moore fan site, and we've worked together before. I knew when I decided on this project he'd be perfect for it. And man, was he ever.
This was daunting at first. I have a 10 year old computer still running XP. I bought Mixcraft 6 and mixed everything in there. After a great Christmas, I finally got a good mic and preamp to do vocals right.
I began in earnest around June 2013, and wrapped up the last days of August. I'd send some initial beats to Amir via SoundCloud.com
, and he'd download them and listen. He'd get some ideas, and send them back. We bounced back and forth, using only emails. Looking back, it's pretty amazing it worked! Amir is such an extremely talented guitarist, he was a huge benefit to me. I couldn't have done nearly as impressive work on my own.
Naturally this recording sounds as no-budget as it is. I worked on it a bit, but eventually decided to let it be and resist the urge to work on it forever. Ideally I'll continue and work on more projects, getting better as I go!
James would like to thank:
my wife, for believing in me more than I believe in myself and enduring all my pursuits in the world of music. You're the best babe! For my daughters and the enjoyment the find in everyday life, and for sharing my love of music. For my mom, for always supporting my endeavors, for helping me buy gear in my youth, and for understanding the artistic drive. Special thanks to Amir for being so awesome to work with and for creating such killer guitar solos.
I thank God always for His blessings, in ability to play music or just to be alive.
Amir would like to thank: my parents.
