Woman in the Way is the title song of our EP! Please share it with your friends and help me get the buzz going! Thank you so much.
Here’s a bunch of stuff I want to tell you about this tune:
This is my first solo work, and it was such an amazing process. Working with David Snider and Geoff Gray at Far & Away Studios in Boulder, CO was the absolute best recording experience I can imagine. It was astounding to watch both of them in action, pretty much reading each other’s minds. David’s musical vocabulary is so broad, and he has worked and/or toured with Pat Benetar, Sonny Sharrock, Bruce Springsteen and Kid Rock to drop a few names on his behalf. While I wrote the lyrics and sang the melody, David composed every aspect of the song and all of the instrumentation. He also played multiple instruments for the track to perfection (except slide guitar – that’s me!). He fit all of the pieces together until it felt right for all of us. Geoff Gray is the Owner and Head Engineer at Far & Away Studios and is such a pro. He hears every detail of a song and is a perfectionist. He has a way of making everyone feel like they’re in his living room in a pressure-free, creative environment. He was a student of Les Paul and has recorded hundreds of albums in every genre over the years, working with artists such as Led Zeppelin and Sonny Sharrock, as well as local artists. I am very grateful to Geoff and David for who they are as human beings and for their musical brilliance. More good stuff to come!
