Finally back at Arimaka Studio in Los Feliz, CA, and yes, indeed, we are happy. It’s great being here again and seeing everything we’ve done so far start adding up. I love the recording process, love working with friends, and I can’t wait to share new music with everyone. It took a long time for all the right elements and circumstances to come together, but here we are.
Last week we recorded the acoustic guitar parts for 5 new songs. I took a few photos while sound engineer/producer Manu Jimenez and Daniel Wright lay the foundations for the new EP.
Daniel Wright is a talented musician, songwriter, and lead singer for the band Radio Skies. We’ve been collaborating since last year at El Camino Sound Studio in Ojai, CA. It has been a wonderful, and always interesting, experience. I’m lucky to again be making music with amazing musicians.
The second day a new friend joined us for a little while. Manu’s tiny rescue dog has a big name, Ulysses. He was right at home in the studio and on my lap. I caught a blurry photo of the moment he turned around to give me a kiss. Sweet Ulysses, he listened quietly and gave me a few kisses.
Driving back from LA the first day wearing my Indigo Sky shirt.
I like the mood of this little clip. Electric guitars are next…
Will share more photos and videos soon. -Elena
