Recording a 2nd EP

Today I scheduled a recording session at Swallow Hill in Denver for May 21. As of now, my plan is to make a 5-song EP of songs I've been playing for the last year or so. I'll record the 3 songs I wrote a year ago-- "Like a Child", "Me", and "You Could Have Had Me", and two of the first songs I wrote that I didn't put on my DIY record, "Daddy's Little Girl" (2004) and "I Miss Me" (2005).

"Some Songs I Wrote" was a DIY record I recorded myself in my basement 2 years ago, mixed and mastered it, played all the instruments, and did the artwork--even took my own photograph. This time I'll have Swallow Hill's recording engineer and live show sound man, Brian Hunter, handle the technical duties. And I'll have my violin player who's been accompanying me the last two years, Julie Oxenford O'Brian, record her parts.

The tentative title is "More Songs I Wrote". It will come out in a cardboard sleeve (I HATE jewel cases).

Of course I reserve the right to change my mind on any and all of the above. :)
