musicians at work

Rachel Kurtz is working on a new album and asked me to play on it so yesterday I made my way down to the Library and tracked guitar for a couple hours with Matt Patrick at the helm.  Working with Matt Patrick was great – our last gig was as the Monsters of Folk in March of 2005.  Since then more famous bands have taken that monicker, and in an interesting side note had to buy the domain name from Micah.  It’s not everyday Conner Oberst’s manager calls you up…

So Matt’s Studio was great, Rachel liked what I played and after I packed up my guitar I helped co-write the second half of a song she was about to record. 

That, my friends, is a good day at the office.

Tomorrow I have a gig with Rachel in Cokato MN.  We’re opening for Robin Mark (best known for his P&W hit, Days of Elijah) and then we’re his backing band.  I wasn’t familiar with much of his work but have really enjoyed figuring out mandolin and steel parts for his stuff.  I’ll get to play my tele, my electric and acoustic lap steels, and my mandolin.  I’m looking forward to it!  If you’re in the area come check it out.
