The Dan Tyminski Band is still hard at work in the studio, trying to complete the recording of their debut CD before they begin touring in January ’08. At this point, Rounder is looking for an early spring release for this highly anticipated, as yet unnamed project.
Mandolinist Adam Steffey says that the band has gelled quickly, and is getting a great sound in the studio.
“The recording is going well and we’re all very pleased with what we’ve got down so far. We are cutting at Omni Studios in Nashville and are trying to finish the project up and get it ready to mix and master by the end of the year. It’s mostly new songs written by folks within the band, with two new tunes co-written by Craig Market and Darren Shoemaker, a Patrick McDougal tune, a Ron Block original, and a tune from Jeff White.
We’re all happy with the way it’s shaping up and can’t wait to get it finished up and out to all the folks.”
Here are a few photos from the first tracking sessions.
Their first show will be at Nashville’s Station Inn on January 2, followed by a quick west coast trip to San Francisco and Portland. Touring begins for them in earnest by mid-February, and you can find the shows as they are updated on Dan’s MySpace page.
