Once again, Stephen Mougin at Dark Shadow Recording has prevailed on one of his artists to retail their recording experience for us in blog form. This time, it’s Becky Buller who is working on her first solo project with the label. Here is the seventh installment of her studio diary. A talented songwriter, Becky also tours and records with Darin & Brooke Aldridge on fiddle and clawhammer banjo.

Just finished up my lead vox on Nothin’ To You, just minutes before Kenny and Amanda Smith came in to sing. They’re in the booths at the moment cutting their harmonies. Slightly interesting side note on this song: I pitched it to them a couple times, but it never did make one of their records. Oh, the irony of it all! Funny how things work out!
There was a bit of unpleasantness when they first got to the studio today. This being a vocal session, I didn’t figure Mojo would appreciate cookie crumbs in his pretty blue microphone so I opted to sleep in and not bake… Amanda said she saw how they rated compared to the dudes in there the other day. I pinky swore I’d make it up to them and I think they’re over it now…I mean, they didn’t leave or anything…they’re in there singing right now…
Needless to say, it sounds lovely!
End of day seven. Harmony heaven!
