Months before the COVID-19 lock-down I began working on a recording project with my former coworker and close friend, Rich Berta. Rich is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and live performer in the New York Tri-State area.
With the drums and bass guitar tracks recorded by Tom “Goose” Seguso in his home studio, Rich began overdubbing guitar, piano, and vocals at my home studio in late 2019. Produced by Rich and myself, we’ve nearly finished tracking and mixing at this point. I began working on final mixes and mastering since the lock-down began in mid March.
