I recently finished mastering the first installment of Shohei Kobayashi’s latest release and you– (just in time for the new year, too!). Shohei did all the production and recording himself. It’s a beautifully concise and heartfelt release. Give it a listen and keep your ears peeled for parts 2 and 3!
This summer Nathan Tucker and I spent a few afternoons recording his new 5-song EP To Find Open Space at my studio. It’s a minimalist songwriting approach with acoustic guitar and vocals relying heavily on the power of the words to carry the songs. Think Tallest Man on Earth on a rainy Portland day.
