Practice Made Perfect: A Year with Cullen & Marcin

A year ago today, Marcin, Cullen and I gathered in the attic practice space in Weston to begin work on What To Keep & Let Go, namely Horizons & In the End. It's hard to believe that it's been a year since these songs started coming to life after about 6 years of sitting in demo form in my head and on the computer. Both Cullen and Marcin still have a little bit more work to do, Hello, Amy needs the full band treatment and Marcin will be playing some piano riffs on some songs as well as hopefully doing bass for If Not Now, Then When? Other than that, these guys have completed most of their parts! I was telling Cullen yesterday how happy I am with his work on Circles; he really captured the exact vision I had for the song. These guys have done a stand-up job at really bringing the songs to new level and showing me things I would have never thought to bring to the record. It's been a worthwhile experience working with these very talented guys and I couldn't have done it without them. (Chad, you'll get your 1 year post coming up later in the month...haha)

Btw,...can we talk about how different we all look in just a year?? haha
