#SkyBlueSky PreProduction

4 weeks ago

It starts with the music.

I’m not sure how technology works, but we were able to somehow bend the time-space continuum to have a little Philly-to-Rio jam session. Facetiming some chill Brazilian rhythms at Bruno Migliari’s 8VB studios.

I met Bruno Migliari back in 2011, when I performed several shows with the magical Denise Reis in venues all over Rio de Janeiro. Here we are all performing together at Teatro Café Pequeno in Brazil. I am very excited to have him producing this new song, as well as performing on it. He is all about that bass.

#SkyBlueSky Recording in Brazil


I’m finally getting back in the studio! Or, make that: Studios. Because i’ll be recording my song Sky Blue Sky via satellite in Brazil! As you can see in the photo above, I’ve been teleconferencing with producer Bruno Migliari in Rio de Janeiro who will be assembling a band of renown Brazilian musicians to help me capture the perfect sound for my new single. I’ll be recording my part here in Philadelphia. You can follow this unique cross-continental collaboration step by step as we make music across the internet, and you can share how excited you are by tagging me and using the hashtag: #SkyBlueSky. Plenty more details to come. Stay tuned!!!
