Recording with Trout Fishing In America

I just got back from a great day and a half in Prairie Grove, Arkansas with Ezra Idlet and Keith Grimwood of Trout Fishing In America. We recorded a tune Ezra and I wrote called "Bananas Foster." Very funky and fun. The above link will take you to a rough first mix and we still have some tweaking to do, but I wanted to share the musical love. (And if you know the owners of Brennan's in New Orleans, let me know! We have a song for 'em...) The song will definitely be on my next CD, but a release date is FAR from now.

Thanks to Ezra and Keith for their musical gifts and to Ezra's wife Karen for the wonderful hospitality! (Ezra makes a mean pot roast.) Ezra and I hiked for a bit on his wonderful land and I got to see the treehouse he built. AWESOME. A perfect place to record good music for the soul.

Beautiful country where they live and a great place to commune with nature on their 100+ acres. So beautiful!

(Ezra and Keith's most recent release "Big Round World" was just nominated for a Grammy, so get it if you haven't already.)

Recording with Ezra of Trout Fishing In America

I will be heading to Prairie Grove, Arkansas this week to record the song "Bananas Foster" with Ezra Idlet of the Grammy-nominated Trout Fishing In America! (By the way, if you haven't gotten their new CD "Big, Round World," you need to. It's worth it for the whole family!)

Ezra and I wrote the song last year at the KC Jiggle Jam. Just killing time in the green room!
Hopefully, Keith will come on over to play a little bass on the tune, too.

Recording the musical continues....

Soprano extraordinare Cheryl Clark helped me out this week with the character of Ms. Patty, the daycare director. Wonderful lady!

New videos of Funky Mama fans!

Rock out, Lucy! That's all I have to say. :)
