Just wanted to stop by quickly and give you all an update on how the album is coming along - Tracking is well and truly underway, with only the vocals and a few bits'n'pieces left to tidy up. Caleb, as always, is producing like a man posessed and i couldn't be happier with how everything is sounding. We've got a few days left to go, before I head out on a holiday trek around the world, so chances are good we'll have to put the finishing touches on later this year. I'll keep you posted though! Here are a couple or pics i thought you'd dig....head on over to the TURNER facebook page for more.
It'll be two years in July since i was lucky enough to release debut LP "Ghosts", and in all honestly, i didn't think there would be a follow up. Thankfully the last 18 months have been kind and i'm very pleased to have started tracking Album No 2 as of yesterday. Caleb James is in the producers chair yet again and is already making his mark.
Yesterday we knocked over all 7 drum tracks and have set a cracking benchmark to work towards, as far as quality goes. Couldn't be happier. For those who are unfamiliar with the process - the drum takes are all we keep from yesterdays sessions and are the foundations of the album. We'll start building guitars etc. on those tracks in a couple of weeks time. From there, the songs & overall sound of the record, will really start to take shape! You can check out a taste of how it all went down here.
Hi all...thought i'd drop by and write a quick line considering it's been a little while between news updates! I'm slowing down on the touring for a wee while, but things are definitely cooking along nicely behind the scenes. You & i have plenty to look forward to in 2013.
The last couple of years have been pretty hectic - loads of touring all around the country, releasing an album - something i never thought i'd do - film clips, awards and meeting plenty of you lovely folk in the process. My car hates me for putting all the extra miles on its clock, but i wouldn't change a thing.
I'm not the kinda guy that's going to insult your intelligence and make an announcement about making an announcement (insert generic band facebook status update here) so all i will say is that 2013 will be VERY busy and i can happily guarantee you Album No.2 is starting to take shape!
Have a fantastic holiday season - stay safe and behave yourselves.
Love y'all to bits!
