Well, hello. It's February 2019, and we've finally started RECORDING MY NEW RECORD. I mean, really. I'm not joking. I'd say we are already, like, 35% done! And it sounds really good if I do say so myself. It's been 10 YEARS since the last one. I am a different person and it's interesting to see how I approach the whole process now. I am a better singer and guitar player now, so that helps. But my darn phone, and social media, and the state of the world, among other things, definitely helped slow the process and are still slowing it. Just gotta keep plowing now that we started. Scott, my husband/producer/bass player, is doing an amazing job shepherding the whole thing. Rich Feridun and Sim Cain are killing it on guitar and drums respectively so far.

Everyone says that it's not important to make a "record" anymore; that people just put out songs now. I just don't think that's my bag, and I really want to hold a vinyl RT album in my hands.

You may or may not know that Scott and I run Storybook Sound, a mastering studio (with mixing and recording on the side) here in NJ. Scott is an amazing mastering engineer with an incredible ear. After a bananas construction project that involved me watching in terror as cement poured through the laundry room window, cruising Etsy for vintage sconces, and commissioning my mother-in-law to sew bathroom curtains, we now have a beautiful and cozy updated studio in what was once our basement...it even has a bar if you want to have a rumchata with us.

I've still been playing every couple of months, in NJ or Manhattan at various locales. The latest band lineup includes stellar guitarists John Sharples and Rich Feridun, and legendary drummer Sim Cain.

P.S., I'd also like to let you know about 2 other cool performance series I help out with out here in convenient and cool Essex County, NJ: the Saturday Afternoon Song Swap, which I run with the amazing Deena Shoshkes, and Banjo Lisa's House Concerts, run by the lovely former proprietress of Banjo Jim's, my favorite East Village hangout ever.

And of course, Scott helps out on sound at Rent Party, the live music series that helps fight hunger, which happens here in Maplewood, at the glorious Woodland hall.

So, there's a decent amount going on! To get in touch, email rebeccamo34@gmail.com..
