Track Clean Up and Last Time I Work on "Struck Down"




Today is by far one of my favorite days in the creation process. It's the track clean up right before sending off to mix. Basically i go through the song and listen to each audio track (i.e. guitars, drums, vocals, etc.) I consolidate all the work so the file is smaller and is cleaner for the mix engineer to work with. I do everything from making each audio file the same length as the session, change the color of each audio track, add location markers, and reorganize the instruments so the instruments are grouped with their like instruments.  The whole process is intoxicating for me because it allows me to really sit with the song and tighten it up a bit. Most of the time i end up mixing the levels a bit so the mix engineer has an idea as to what direction i want the track to go.

The song i worked on today is one that i previewed in one of my Instagram posts a couple days back. The track is called "Struck Down" and is one of my favorites from the "IDENTITY" project thus far. The song features the very talented vocalist, and long time friend of mine, Kristin Strom. Kristin and I go way back! Met her 5 years ago when i was living in Lawrence, Kansas. She was the worship leader for a church that i attended and her and I would always talk about music and a collaboration. Fast forward five years later and we FINALLY collaborated on a track. Anyway, Kristin and I had a blast with this and spent a lot of time planning out the track and her roll in everything. It's been a trip. It's almost bittersweet to know that her and my work for this song are completed. Each song TRULY is a journey. There are so many great feelings going in to this particular track that it's hard to watch it come to an end. I mean shit...not only does it date back to when we were sitting in the church talking about collaboration, the first time i ever went to LA, i was working on the same song we visualized! There have been so many great memories and so many great people assisting in this track that if it even had the slightest bit of a chance of flopping, i wouldn't give two shits. This song has been a blast. So sad to see it end. I guess it's just like that quote says: "All good things must come to an end."
