The vocal is the most important part of any song: it’s the conversation that forms a bond between performer and listener. And now, years of production expertise have been folded in to  an easy-to-understand, comprehensive guide about recording great vocals. Topics include choosing a mic, recording techniques, using DSP, equalization, dynamics processing, pitch correction, reverb, delay, layering, comping, harmonizing, automation, and much more. An additional chapter on performance tips goes beyond technology to explore not just how to obtain great sounds, but how to create compelling vocal performances.

Joie de Vivre! is my music video album project for 2018, which is all about rock meets EDM. It includes final versions of three songs previewed on YouTube earlier this year, with four new songs (including a remix of the song "To Say 'No' Would Be a Crime" from last year's Simplicity album), all arranged as a continuous mix. The songs were recorded during 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee.
