The “making of” video is becoming a standard promotional tool in the acoustic music world, offering fans a little peak into the process of recording. They generally offer snippets of audio from an upcoming project, some behind the scenes footage of the artists at work, and maybe a funny segment or two to humanize the artists a bit.
Part of what makes it different is that the Romeros brought the process to their home, deep in the interior of British Columbia. With a new baby to care for, they decided to have all the accompanists travel north to them, along with recording engineer David Travers-Smith and all his gear. Miles joined the merry band to get it all on film, and the result is riveting viewing, set against the winterscape of northern Canada.
You can sample all of the tracks from Pharis and Jasson’s new album online.
