Who Have You Been With is the first track on our new album, Throwing Glory. The physical CD is now in production and should be delivered to my doorstep within the next two weeks. We finished the recording back in February so it is exciting to be at this stage of the process. There is no doubt that down loads has taken over much of the way music is shared these days, but there remains something wonderful about the physical artifact that you can hold in your hand.
I had a lot of fun developing the package design with my friends at GreyMatter Group. I did several different design mock ups that I shared with Rick Devon at GM and also with my band mates. We took what we felt was the best of a couple different designs and put them together to make what we have as the final package. Everything I do is all old school drawing, collage and woodblock cutting. At Greymatter they are experts with what the computer can do to an image so it becomes a wonderful marriage of two different approaches.
I love both visual art and making music. I am always looking for ways that they can overlap in my life. Making a cool CD package is one of those places.
