We are getting close! The new album is almost ready for final mix and mastering. I tracked a violin solo for one of the songs this week, which was great fun. One aspect of being in the studio that I feel is just as important as unbridled creativity, is personal growth as a musician. I came into this process having minimal knowledge of tracking instrumentation to a click track, and now I feel like I can’t imagine myself tracking without one! (Believe me, it helps!) I have also realized the importance of restraint and knowing how to leave sonic space. When you’re recording all instrumentation and vocals yourself, it can be easy to fall into the trap of doing every part at maximum intensity, but you have to think about the whole picture and how the elements might play off one another.  I will provide another update soon. Once again, thank you all for supporting independent music. - Olivia
