Song Stories: Mr. Golden Son

Working out the verse melody and arrangement early on.

Anna and I just finished recording a new song. More often than not songs have a journey associated with them and this one is no exception. I recorded a short oral history where I play back some of the earliest demos of the song (four years old!) and take you through the decisions we made to eventually get to a final mix.

Recording some backing guitar in the “studio” AKA our basement. .

I want to tell the story of how this song came to be partly because I like the way it turned out but also to remind myself that there is a lot of work that goes into making something from nothing. When I get impatient with future songs, I’ll be able to look back and be reminded to stay the course.

This audio format is new and experimental so please drop a comment letting us know what you think.

Thank you for listening,

Luke + Anna
