Too Early : Rusty Willoughby
“In this world I’ve come to realize, you don’t want to get there too early”
I was lucky enough to record and mix an in-studio performance from Rusty Willoughby at KEXP last weekend, and since then I’ve been unable to get this song out of my head. That sounds a bit clichéd perhaps, but remember I mix a lot of songs, listening to them hundreds of times in a day, so its pretty rare that one breaks through that crowded part of my mind.
Rusty and the band – Barbara Hunter, Barrett Martin, Johnny Sangster, and Rachel Flotard were great to work with, funny and serious at the same time. This is my favorite kind of people to work with, they can really play, the craft is there, but there is still fun to be had playing music with each other. I had a blast just being in the room.
