As you know, I’ve been researching recording studios in the Pittsburgh area. I was kind of surprised by how many there are–it seems Pittsburgh does a lot of recording for really legit artists! For some reason I always think my city is smaller than it actually is.
Recently I found a studio that looks great online and seems like it could be a really supportive environment for beginners (like me!). I won’t give you the name yet because I’m not committing to anything, but I’ll be touring the studio tomorrow, and I have high hopes.
Since October I’ve been devoting at least 6 hours per week to a combination of song writing, learning covers, practicing, self-promotion, and performing live. For the next month or so I’m streamlining my process and devoting those six hours to nothing but practicing my five songs. I need to be completely and utterly sick of these songs by the time I record them. ^_^
If all goes well, I hope to do most of my recording in late May/early June. I still have no idea how long production usually takes, but I’ll keep you posted as I learn more!
