The Reto Sessions, Volume II

I’m sitting in NYC, listening to final mixes of The Reto Sessions Volume II. It’s print time! That’s a wrap. We did it again.  

Big thanks to Reto Peter (producer/mix engineer), John Morales (drums), James Nash (guitar/mando), Jordan Feinstein (keys/organs) and Uriah Duffy (bass). I’m so excited about this!

The new EP will be released at Two Day Town Music Festival at Lake Del Valle on April 25th. I’ll have special edition, hand-crafted cd’s (scrapbook style) at the festival like last year and then combine The Reto Sessions Volume I and II on one cd for after the festival.   

A little about the release: I think it’s important to point out that The Reto Sessions is NOT called The RETRO Sessions… No, it’s not a typo… lol It’s named after the magnificent producer/engineer Reto Peter, who so graciously allowed my homies and me to play for his class at the Art Institute in San Francisco.  He used us to demonstrate how to record a full band live and isolated to his students. It was a great experience and I’m grateful that he asked us to do it.
