Last year I did some major upgrades to my recording studio and the recording quality and capabilities increased dramatically. Part of the goal of all of these upgrades is to be capable of recording and producing other artists while continuing to produce and release my own original material with The BLP and solo.
Since February, I have collaborated with my Dad, Bud Ledbetter in the studio for some Bluegrass and Old Time music. Along with the solid bass from brother Joe, we recruited Matt Warwick on Banjo and Vocals, and Dale Sharp on Dobro, Mandolin, and Vocals. Both of these guys can play and sing! Bud brings 70 years or so of playing and singing with a brain full of American Roots Music, especially Bluegrass and Gospel. We are taking our time but have several keepers recorded already and we are all excited about releasing some songs soon and an album next year. Stay tuned for updates on this project and others. If you’re not subscribed for updates, use the Register for Updates form and I’ll keep you in the loop.
I also recently overhauled my website with a new design, updated the Writing/Editing pages with samples and new info, and added a page for the Recording Studio where you can hear some sample recordings.
