In the Mt Shasta area a band reforms! An album of songs written by Ken Nelson, made by an odd group of wonderful friends, has been released!.
My closest musical friends and I have been inspired to recreate 12 songs written from our past band days.
Over 5 years ago we began this project at Radio Star Studio in Weed, California. http://www.loudpalace.com/
We took 3 days to track basic drum and rhythm tracks with a core band of Ken Nelson, Richard Lucas, Christian Heilman, Paul Beck, and Stefan Schittko.
