Jake, Allie, Temi, AJ, Pantera in the way back... Olivia and Ari and me up front...OK so we couldn't get EVERYONE in the picture...
But what a great great workshop. I truly was knocked out by every single person in the room. The collaborations were inspiring. I was amazed,moved, tickled by what the teams came up with. People who had really just met made powerful songs, powerful connections.
We recorded six songs in the last two days, Thanks to the NYU team, great interns, engineers, fabulous musicians. Amazing things happened.
I don't have a picture of the band, but it was Shawn Pelton on drums, Zev Katz on bass, and the fab Mark Copely on guitar. My my my. Hats off.
The new hits include: "Time," "When you were mine" "Madonna" "Safe" "Almost Home" and "Shout it Out." Each one absolutely unique and a thrill to witness coming to life. Really people, I had no idea coming into this where we'd end up, and I really didn't want it to end. Kudos All!!!! Great, great work.
Barry, Ron, Zev, me, Phil, Robert. Thank you thank you thank you.
Zev and me. awwwww. Can't wait to hear some rough mixes of the demos.
