ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Well folks, I recently had my 4th anniversary as the Looper. It was May of 2011 when I was first offered a solo gig performing my acoustic guitar looping. Since then I’ve learned and arranged dozens of songs for all the various gigs that have come my way, each time not just improving my playing skills but also realizing the creation of an ensemble sound through looping. I decided early on not to incorporate any electronic elements, just my Breedlove acoustic guitar and the loop pedal, and that choice has served me well. Over the last 4 years I played over 700 gigs, recorded the 1st Looper album, took a left turn and produced an album of original surf guitar music called Surf Don’t Swim (inspired by the first cue I created for the TV show The Mentalist), and now at long last, completed Looper 2. The songs included here are favorites of mine and my fans, and two of them are my own.
The recording of this latest work was an intensive growth period for me as a guitarist, recording engineer and producer. When I’m playing gigs, the sound I’m hearing is acoustic guitar, but larger than life somehow with the resonance of the room and the loops created in the performance. In the studio, I’m out to recreate that sound, capturing the same intensity and ambience of a live show. Crafting that sound can be a little crazy: set the mic, adjust the levels, do a take, listen back, move closer to the mic or farther away, try a different mic, plug into an amp, try it a little faster, or slower, more aggressive or perhaps more gently, record more parts, mix the parts, listen, think about it, add a new part or take away an old part, experiment, reflect, refine...musician, technician, artist...round and round in a virtuous loop.
