This album was recorded from Dec. 2011 to Dec. 2012. These songs are from my life in America.
Part 1 - (Kung Fu Sessions)
All That You Are
I'll Never Love You Again
Recorded at Kung Fu Bakery studio in South East Portland with Tim Ellis producing and Dave Freidlander engineering. We recorded tracks for 8 songs - but I wanted to focus on a complete album so I went back into the studio. The first song we cut was Into Me - which became the title track to the album.
Right There Where You Are
Recorded at Infinity Studios and New North Sound. Engineered by Noah WashburnTroy Welsted, who played keys on many of the tracks, mixed and helped produce the first 8 songs. We finished 10 songs by August and I set off for a 4 month stint in Nashville.
Recorded in Nashville at The Bomb Shelter with Andrija Tokic engineering and Tim Boucher on keys and production. These were meant to finish the album.
The album was mastered by Dale Becker in Los Angeles, California.
Thanks for listening.
