STUDIO SESSION NOTES

Both of Tom's songs (featured here), were recorded almost a year apart and not part of a CD project.

 

Tom's an amazing performer and songwriter and for his first session he brought along a wonderful tune called "You're Driving Me Away." As Tom plays this song regularly as part of his gig line up, and does it well, we decided to record the guitar and vocals during the same take.

 

For "A Change of Heart," Tom laid down a guitar track first and then Tom and his wife, Priscilla, laid down the vocals in one take.

 

The Recording Details

The main guitar mic was a Neumann TLM107 Condenser mic set to a Figure-8 pattern, with the sides pointing away from the vocal and visa-versa for the vocal mic. I ran each mic through my Focusrite ISA II preamp and an ART Pro VLA II stereo compressor. However, rarely did the compressor ever engage.

 

Package Design

As these were single songs there was no CD packaging required. To help fill a graphics gap for this website,  I designed a quick and simple CD cover.

 

Sincerely, Bob McCarroll
