Two days recording @ StarBird HQ with MORGAN DAVIS, Alec Fraser (bass), and Ron Chilton (engineer). While the inside of the new studio is ready to rock, we still have a few rocks to move around outside...
photo & quote by Alec: "Recording up north for two days at Mark Mariash 's StarBird HQ studio. These domed wooden ceilings make for a nice sound on the new Morgan Davis record. Morgan sang through a PA with no headphones. Super comfortable setting. Thanks Mark."
Very delighted for Buffy Sainte-Marie and her Juno win. I am so honoured to have been included as a musician on this great project. Thank you Buffy ... you are amazing. xo Mark
