The best kept secret in music


"Kol Marshall"


jimmy Goodman of LEOPARD STUDIO called me in to tweak some mixes and then master a project he recorded there in ProTools. The band, SWAMP MUD is a New York City based blues-rock band, and the 13 songs I worked on will comprise their debut release. Singer songwriter Eddy Lee Priest has penned some poignant and catchy songs, and his voice reminds me of a well-pitched Joe Strummer. Lead guitarist Seth Goldart has great tones and licks, and adds a jam-band like feeling to many of the middle-eight solo sections. The rhythym section (Eli Wagner on bass and Roy Luchesse on drums) holds down a really solid foundation of driving rock beats, funky grooves, Texas swing, and mournful ballads. All the basic tracking was recorded live by Jimmy Goodman, with only vocals and solos being overdubbed, all during a four day tracking and mixing session. I made a few small alterations to the bass and drum tones and some of the vocal levels, and added some over-all EQ and compressor-limiter plug-ins to the mixes to get them more crisp and punchy. As a final step we added the Vintage Warmer plug-in, which is really a fantastic tool. The band left with duplication masters,which will soon go out for pressing.

Feeling a bit camera shy


It was late july 2004,Eddy Lee Priest and The Lost Souls had just played Tobacco Road in NYC to a packed house, later in the week Eddy received news that "like many other clubs in NYC" they had to close because of the high rent. To top it off the band had called it quits and there was Eddy,standing on the side of the road.About a month later he got a phone call from Bass player Evan "Eli" Wagner who was looking to put something together, so he set up a jam session with drummer Roy "the real McCoy" Luchesse. Eddy had written some songs about his travels around the united states, some by bus, car transports, and hitch hiking. They were soon playing gigs around NYC when they picked up lead guitarist seth goldart. At the end of july 2005 the group took a road trip up to leopard studio in new paltz to record their debut CD as SWAMP MUD which was released on october 1st, 2005.
