AJC and The Envelope Pushers Recording @ Sneaky B Studios (5.22.10)
for a weekly photo blog i sure have been forgetting that “weekly” part :p
sorry about that everyone. the summer months are always my busiest months, but i’ll try to do better!
speaking of doing better.
(that’s not the real name of it. in fact Byron hasn’t chosen a name yet. so, till then, i’m going with “Sneaky B.” because Byron is the owner of Sneaky Beans coffee house. you see what i did there?)
and since you’re reading this post, you’ve probably already figured out my answer.
also, The Envelope Pushers will be performing July 30th up at Sneaky Beans! show starts at 7pm and only $5 at the door! make sure you check it out. the boys put on a great live show!
ok, let’s get to it!
i wanted to get it as close to that film look as possible so i shot with a 35mm prime lens, wide open, and then kept the grain when i converted it to black/white.
Frank White was on drums so he’s getting all set up
Jerrell Moore was on one set of keys and this is him getting all set up on the other side of the glass.
that’s Gerald Morgan on the piano right there. he was on the second set of keys. (heh, he hated having his photo taken. but i got some anyway!)
that’s Byron on the right, talking to Jeremy Grant, who was on lead guitar that day.
(i dig this shot)
Byron and AJC talking over what the game plan is
Byron making sure everything is being hooked up correctly
Brandon Jackson on bass
that 35mm didn’t let me down, shooting in only low available light
Byron at the master controls
this was around the time that the ole “hurry up and wait” hit.
small talking on the other side of the glass
Taylor Hildebrand dropped by to grab some equipment
Brandon doing some sound checking
the sound check continues, but now Frank joins in
Taylor, multitasking texts and Facebook
AJC starts laying down his vocals
Bryon, doing a little fine tuning
Jerrell laying down some smooth keys
the jam session has kicked in
“Brother” Mitch, chillin’ in the background
took me three tries to nail this shot, the way i wanted it
grabbing a shot of AJC laying his vocals while on the other side of the glass
some behind the scenes small talking
Jeremy getting ready to lay down some of his guitar tracks
i honestly love going on shoots like this
i dig capturing all the behind the scenes stuff
Gerald pulls out the sax and lays some sax on it
starting to get everything all wrapped up
as you can tell from the background, the band has already packed up
Bryon final checking everything
The Envelope Pushers have left the building!
and that’ll wrap it up.
eagle eye followers of Scenes Around Jackson will notice that this is the same studio that The Bachelorettes recorded in, but back then it was Misha Hercules’ Olympic Records Studios. very true. but Misha moved to Oxford so Byron took over the spot. and so it goes.
don’t forget to check out AJC and The Envelope Pushers LIVE at Sneaky Beans July 30th!
have a good one everybody!
see ya next week!
