Recorded in early 2009 (here’s some photos from the release party!), Lean is Brian’s first formal recorded release, a seven-song EP of his original songs. I played keyboard on this album and provided harmony vocals; Audrey Webber played cello and did further harmony vox; Terry Drysdale drums on two tracks.
The album was recorded and mixed almost entirely on Garageband in my living room, with Brian and Aubrey and I working together on the production and engineering. Drums were recorded elsewhere, and Aubrey also did some independent cello recording on her Pro Tools setup.
The instrumental outro on the final track is my composition; I wish we’d had more time and energy and some additional available strings players to realize it more cleanly, but I’m still quite happy that we managed to work it in there.
Lean is available for purchase or high-quality download from CD Baby.
