Quote of the Day

\"Iíve made hit records in some pretty ratty-ass studios, studios that would not qualify as high-tech; Iíve been in some high-tech studios that werenít very inspiring; Iíve been in some bedroom studios that are just wonderful.Ē- Bruce Swedien

Production Notes & Credits:

ďReaching OutĒ is a female vocal rock song. Dan wrote the lyrics and co-wrote the music, in addition to playing the guitars and handling all of the programming, recording/mixing and mastering (ďin my basementĒ, says Dan). Albert Nobles played the bass and Kelly Nobles-Grange sang the world-class vocals.

Recording: Man oh man, whatís NOT to like here? A highly creative arrangement coupled with some top-notch drum programming and quality tones all around.

Oh, and did we mention the world class vocals? Yeah, we did, but weíll mention them again, WORLD CLASS vocals. Kelly is some type of divine cross between Ann Wilson and Judy Collins. Hey, donít ask us, it just works!

Extra special shout out to Dan for the masterful job that he did in capturing said vocals in all their power and glory, without squashing them to death with overcompression. This is how itís done, boys and girls.

Summary: Crazy Good!!
