Recording session with Mr Underwood of Iskra Strings

New songs are starting to take some shape. Spent the day coloring basic guitars and beats with James' swirling violin wizardry, twisting Bollywood-like riffs with a sliding a humming bow, plucking raindrops out of the sky. Great to finally get the melody lines that have been running laps around my head over the winter onto Mac. We managed to get ideas down on as many as four songs! One particularly special take finished with a Heron sighting from the window. A flash of giant white wings and we left our headphones and became amateur wild life photographers for five minutes...all up until the moment I stepped outside for a closer shot and it flew away into the clouds.
