Last year I was asked to engineer a record for Andy Buckner up at Echo Mountain in Asheville NC. We locked ourselves in for an 84 hour studio week and cranked out 12 songs.
Most of the record was done live, so I'd say it has the genuine southern rock vibe; tracked on the Neve 8068 console with every vintage microphone you can imagine. We brought it back to The Vault to do some guest overdubs and mix it. We had some pretty killer guests on this project including Charlie Starr (Blackberry Smoke), Rick Richards (The Georgia Satellites), Jason "Rowdy" Cope and "Cowboy" Eddie Long (Jamey Johnson), and our very own Joey Huffman (Hank Williams Jr.) who also produced the record.
Andy's self titled, debut record is out now, available on iTunes or at any of his numerous upcoming shows. Andy pulled over 1,500 people to his CD release show in Asheville last week... Things are happening with this guy so keep an eye out for him!
Here is my favorite song off of the record; Play Me One More featuring Rick Richards on slide guitar and Joey Huffman on piano.
