In January of 2017 Richmond Fontaine and I holed up in Flora Recording and Playback for a snowed in session where we recorded "DON'T SKIP OUT ON ME" - The instrumental companion album to Willy Vlautin's book "DON'T SKIP OUT ON ME." The album is released in the UK/ EU with the hardback copy of the book.
RELEASE DATE : MAY 9, 2018
Meric and I have known each other for a long time now. Over the last ten years I have been lucky to have worked with him on three DODO'S records, we've spent time on the touring together and running from a burning night club, and now Meric produced an album that I mixed, and helped record during one of Portland's big "blizzards". While I mixed in my mix room, Meric was in tracking and singing in the live room next to me. We each had a station and worked. it was a great process and the result is a total nerd fest.
RELEASE DATE: APRIL 20, 2018
Alex Guy wrote the string arrangements for cello, violin, and viola for this album of Sera's older songs. Sera nailed these versions and the intimate nature of the strings works perfectly for the record.
RELEASE DATE : FEB 2018
RECORDING / MIXER
I have been a long time fan of Dana's in the Akron Family, and as a drummer in various projects. So getting to work with him on this record was a total honor and a total blast.
