Goners_Cover_600x600.jpg

Excited that the first single from the album I had the pleasure of working on with Laura Gibson is out. It is called "Tenderness" and you can hear it here.  We started this album last summer at Halfling Studios and then ended up doing all of the rest of the tracking and mixing at my studio Scenic Burrows. Really happy this song is out. Album to be released October, 26, 2018.

FAN - BARTON’S DEN

FAN -  BARTON'S DEN

Meric and I have known each other for a long time now. Over the last ten years I have been lucky to have worked with him on three DODO'S records, we've spent time on the touring together and running from a burning night club, and now Meric produced an album that I mixed, and helped record during one of Portland's big "blizzards". While I mixed in my mix room, Meric was in tracking and singing in the live room next to me. We each had a station and worked. it was a great process and the result is a total nerd fest.

Alex Guy wrote the string arrangements for cello, violin, and viola for this album of Sera's older songs. Sera nailed these versions and the intimate nature of the strings works perfectly for the record.
