Still Waters

An all-instrumental CD recorded, mixed,and mastered on Pro Tools in my home studio; "Wiegel Room." Recorded in summer 2018 in one hot week in July (we had to keep turning off the AC so you wouldn't hear it on the recording), and mixed in January 2019 during the polar vortex. A study in contrasts! Many thanks to Pat Davis for helping with that, and Jim Wildeman for the album art.
