Quick Band Update

As many of you know, I've been in the process of assembling a new live band for gigging recently. I've had quite a few interested and talented musicians turn out, which I'm so grateful for, and I'm dwindling selections down the actual band members at this point. To say I'm excited at this point is an understatement.

There are some good show opportunities coming around, so I'm super pumped to get things moving forward and uber pumped to start playing the tunes from the new EP for folks! Stay tuned for more info.

Brandon Soto Edgewater Studio Sessions

So the venture out to Sugar Land, TX to track at Edgewater Studios was great. Smooth commute, smooth stay, smooth tracking = all good. Luckily, my cold/severe as-folk allergies (that decided to show up 2 days before the trip) was pretty much gone by the time we tracked vocals; bonus.

Be sure to check out the Imagery section of the website as it will be updated soon with some studio pics.
