About "The Spirit & the Bride"
"The Spirit & the Bride" is a collection of ten out of many songs written throughout the infancy of my song crafting ventures. Spanning a writing period of nearly five years, the album was finally brought to fruition independently after I sought the help of Jon Class at The Varsity Recording Company in Andersen, Indiana. The recording process in its entirety was comprised of three or four visits to Andersen from March through November of 2017, the first couple of which were spent tracking the instrumental and rhythmic layers of the songs with the help of many wonderful musicians and people whose names and contributions I will include presently:
Jon Class: Producer, Head Engineer, Mixer, Piano, Keyboards, Background Vocals, String, Horn, and Piano Arrangements, Co-writer - 10 "The Spirit & the Bride finale".
