I’m so lucky to get to work with some great musicians and audio engineers. Brian Campbell and I go wayyyyback to the Blue Wave days. In between his work on all the great early Powder Blues albums, he engineered Ferron’s classic Testimony and some of my first demos at Blue Wave in 1980 including Another Girl, which we recorded with Powder Blues alumni Will MacCalder and Bill Runge.
Aside from a wall full of gold records, he has a closet full of of vintage Neumann microphones, which is a vocalist’s dream, and a few pieces of analog processing gear from the original studio… Here we are finishing up some mixes at his studio in the CBC bunker in downtown Vancouver.
