Disengage was released in Sept of 09, and by December I was telling Casey I wanted to make another record. It didn't seem rational to make a record so quickly after the first one, but what's rational about any of it? Casey was very supportive and willing to hit it again, but was rightfully cautious, saying, "let's see if the songs are there." Disengage had come out of an interesting period. We had set out to make one kind of record, and into the process of recording, I showed up to the studio one day with these new songs. The first one I played was âdisengage.â Casey said, âI think we are going to make a different record now. Weâre going to go a different way.â I was surprised, exhilarated and frightened all at once. This new material was really personal and I was right in the middle of itâ¦. I hadnât sorted much of it out in a lot of ways. When I tried to back away from it emotionally at first, the music and lyrics wouldnât come and EVERYTHING felt all wrong. I wasnât going to refuse the muse after just spending a year in the desert so, I just had to keep writing what was there. It was a fragile and vulnerable time. The first song written was âdream tonight,â but I held it back for a bit. As the mixing was about done, I thought about not releasing the record. It was too close. But I knew that wasnât an option on many levels, most importantly, artistically. I realized the whole process was one of letting go. And I let it go. The record covered a lot of ground. And through the whole process, I kept writing and writing.
Casey suggested that we get together and demo some new stuffâ¦just some quick acoustic guitar and vocal recordings. We did 19 songs in one day. I still had more, and a bunch of half- finished ones. At the end of the day, Casey said he thought we already had one solid record there and we should get started. The songs pretty much picked themselves for the new record. I knew what kind of vibe and feel I wanted, and Casey was on the same page. It was going to be a different process this time around.. The goal was to record as much as possible, live, in 2 consecutive sessions and to work out the arrangements on the spot. We put a great band together and set the dates. Casey Wood on drums and engineering. Tim Marks on bass. Michael McAdam was on electric guitar one day and Rob McNelley the next. Rounding it out was Ericson Holt on keys. Then Paul Franklin came in on pedal steel. John Dederick on keys. Jaime Babbitt and Tania Hancheroff on harmony vocals. What a band!! Brandy made great food and documented the whole thing. It was so much fun and felt really present and in tune with what I wanted to happen. And it exceeded that too.
Then it was time to promote and support âdisengageâ live. The record was getting great reviews in the states and in Europe. People were buying the record here and abroad. Nothing on a huge level, but it was time to get out there and see what happened. I booked shows in the winter with the plan of leaving Nashville at the end of June with TWO records to play and put in the hands and ears of people. John Lennon said once, âLife is what happens when youâre busy making other plans.â Nashville flooded. It was devastating. People lost instruments, gear, studios and homes. All deadlines and expectations for me and everyone else changed. Priorities changes instantly. And so, we left town for the west with one record.
The tour went really well and was a lot of fun. "disengage" continued to get great reviews and support. Radio stations all over the country were picking it up. When we werenât playing music, there was some amazing hiking and campingâ¦.except Morro Bay where we made camp on a concrete pad in an RV park.....across the fence from the sewage treatment plant. LA traffic was not much of a treat either. But we hung out with some friends and family along the way, and we met tons of new people. It was difficult to turn east at Sacramento. We still had shows to play, friends and family to see, thousands of miles to drive. But it was past the halfway point and it was the start of it stopping. Well, now we could finish the new record! It was August 9th. My birthday was the next day. We had been gone since the end of June. Well, remember that Lennon quote? We got home to a house with some pretty substantial water damage. The newly finished studio had to be ripped out and redoneâ¦.as did the bathroom and the laundry room. Brandyâs dream job came the day we got back. And the tour ended just like that! So now, in February, the new record is done. Life is funny.
