I’ve spent the last months diligently working to complete my first album production: While I Have Being. I’m happy to report that the project is almost complete and the album is sounding and looking great.
While I Have Being features eleven solo, original banjo compositions. I tracked the pieces both here at CedarSmith studio, and in Salem, Oregon at Spring Hollow Sanctuary, a lovely, peaceful location where I was able to spend a week of uninterrupted tracking. Mixing and editing took place here at CedarSmith, and final mixes and mastering were done by the magic-eared Dale Adkins at Big Owl Studio in Salem, Oregon.
Packaging design is in-process and the first version produced by my friend, the exceptionally talented Tony Figoli, looks great. Another week or so of changes and tweaks and the whole project should be ready to submit for replication. I’m looking to set a release date of early December.
I will be building a website to promote the album at www.darrenjahn.com, where you can learn more about the project as well purchase the CD. The album will also be available for purchase at CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon MP3, Rhapsody, and other popular online vendors, as well as at Main Building Supply in Rogue River.
