van and bus






July 13th, 2014:

Well, we are currently smack dab in the middle of summer and that’s where we stand in the recording process. Over the last month and a half, not only have I been compiling the list of our 5 best songs for the EP, I have been perfecting every note, chord change and lyric of each song with the wonderfully talented Peter Stengaard. As a guitarist, songwriter, producer, engineer and arranger, Peter has worked with countless artists over the years including Diane Warren, Jason Mraz and Joss Stone to name a few. Him and I instantly hit it off and have since been elevating the songs to a level that I have never known before with serious contemporary, commercial potential. We are aiming for the stars with this EP and we don’t plan on settling for any less…one thing’s for sure, it will blow all of your minds! Since the last “News” update, we had a couple of opening slots with some big names including Pete Townshend’s brother Simon and “King of the Hill” Theme Song composer Roger Clyne, an artist with whom The LMB toured with extensively back East. It was wonderful to meet some new faces and see some old ones and, hopefully, it won’t be the last for either. If any, the one down side to this summer is the lack of gigs due to the production of this record. Though we do have some some exciting opportunities on the horizon like the possibility of more BoDeans opening slots or The Downtown Los Angeles YMCA US Bank Building Stair Climb charity event in September, all of our focus has been directed towards making this the greatest recording to date and, again, we truly believe it is going to be worth all of the effort. Right now, we are about to enter into the “pre-production” stage which primarily consists of rehearsing the songs over and over to a metronome so that we know them like the back of our hands by the time we hit the studio (which should be next month, by the way). As a result, we are likely going to become even more remote and distant but will come out on the other side with one helluva product to show for it! Keep checking out our social media pages for live, behind-the-scenes updates from the rehearsals and in the studio!

That’s all for now!
