Mojo Cabin – Writing and Demo Sessions
After 3 weeks of touring, I have finally landed. . . at our dear friend Su’s restored log cabin in beautiful rural New Jersey — at the tip of a peninsula in a lovely serene pond. .
After all these years of desperately needing time to write songs, it has finally come to pass. I will be here in the company of Chad Pope, 2 cats, the bears foxes and fish that live out here in the woods. . .
It is a truly enchanting place. We have some basic recording gear set up in the living space in front of the old stone fireplace, atop a beautiful bearskin rug. . . and we have begun the magic.
Two days after we arrived, we purchased this vintage Wurlitzer organ for only $70 (cheaper than a keyboard rental and with tons more mojo!). We’ve even posted our first rough demo — it’s called “Yesterday Blues”
Listen Here — it’s on the player on the right hand side.
Our social life consists of going to Friday Night Bingo with Su’s mom, Ruth, and hitting the all-night diner with Ruth and Joe, Su’s dad for a snack after Bingo. . .
Today it is raining on the pond. . . a light sprinkling spring rain. . . We’re playing banjo, organ, watching the rain, practicing yoga and preparing for more recording. . . . We’re feeling incredibly grateful. . . More songs to come. . .
