Recording, overdubbing, and mixing for the soon-to-be-released Waccamaw Dreadnoughts CD are now complete. Art work and package design by Eric Hall are also nearing completion. The next step will be sending the songs and art off to be mastered and duplicated. Expect to see the album on sale at CDBaby, Amazon, I-Tunes, and other outlets in early September.
In addition to the band (Dan Ennis–bass, Steve Hamelman–drums, Joe Oestreich–guitar and lead vocals, and Scott Pleasant–keyboards, guitars, and background vocals), the album features background vocals by Fair (that is, Liz Tavernier and Cynthea Kelley) and a trumpet solo by Marty Slapnik. Dan, Joe, and Scott each wrote four songs for the album.
For those of you who just can’t stand to wait that long, here’s an image of the cover and a portion of one song (“Our Beautiful Sun”). Enjoy!
