Almost Done!

The studio at Mayfield Mastering

The new music is almost finished!

It’s been quite a journey, one that began in Sudan in November of 2008.  We began praying about Music for the Radio shortly thereafter, but it wasn’t until November of 2010 that we finally began work on the album.  After tracking in Nashville at the beginning of November we flew Scott down to Houston to begin working on the vocals at our house, but we were unexpectedly derailed.

Our vocal session was cut short when Scott flew back to Nashville to be with his wife when she received the results of a biopsy.  She was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer, but fortunately was given an excellent prognosis.  Two months later she had a double mastectomy that was successful in every possible way.

With chemo awaiting his wife at the end of March, Scott flew back to Houston at the end of January to resume work on the album.  We knocked out the rest of the vocals in a few days, and commenced the mix process, trading mixes and comments via email.  Now, with each mix checked off, the only thing that remains is to sign off on the mastering job, done by John Mayfield at Mayfield Mastering in Nashville.  John’s work has appeared on a number of our former projects, including the BDA record (2004), and both Doorpost Songs albums (2006, 2009).

There is much more work to be done before the album launches in May, but it’s great to be at the end of this creative process and get to enjoy the finished product.  We can’t wait to share it with you!
