ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'Todd Is The Power, Travis is the Melody, And Lenny is The Rock N' Roll'

Guys With Wives (GWW for short) is a Western Canadian Blues-Rock power trio in the tradition of Cream and Led Zeppelin mashed in with Alice In Chains and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Make no mistake though, GWW totally owns its own sound, and that sound is BIG.

Life Is A.... was recorded, mixed and produced at Bedside Studios in Winnipeg Canada by Len Milne, who also happens to be GWW's guitarist.

To understand GWW's sound, you must first understand Bedside Studios. The room itself is a huge, warm, cedar lined cavern with no facing parallel walls, so the sound produced is the sound heard and recorded. This allows a deep, spacious, natural sound to occur without the need for effects and extra compression. Lenny uses articulate mike placement to create space and capture Todd's huge sound and power on which to build a foundation.

Next comes the warm thundering bottom end of Travis's 1972 (re-wired to active) Fender pre bass, followed by the many unique sounds of Lenny's many unique guitars. In fact, the bedtracks for 'Cry No More', 'Down On Granville', 'Silent Screams', and 'I Walk Away' were recorded Live Off The Floor (Those tracks were engineered by Jaxson Haldane, who also plays a mean saw on 'Be One'), with the vocals added later.

Speaking of vocals, to sing in this studio is a vocalist's dream. The room produces a warm rich environment where you feel and hear the movement of air. Once again, various mikes placed throughout the room produce the spacious, natural sounds of the vocals that you hear from track to track without resorting to an effects box or plug-in to mimic that space.

Make no mistake though, Guys With Wives do not rely on the studio for their sound. The band faithfully re-produces their sound live. In fact, the album has a distinctly live feel about it while maintaining the integrity of a well produced album.

So sit back and relax, give it a spin, and if you can, catch the band live, see them shine. Check for event dates at www.gwwb.ca.
