“You did well with what you had to work with”

Still Here by irokie

So… This one’s a little different. It’s a song that we used to play in Outbreed. I called over to Michael with my kit in tow and did the recording. Thanks to limiting factors from the real world, I got over late. Well, late to start a session, unless you’re like one of them “death rockers” who can stay up late and play guitar as loud as they like.

This song is called Still Here. It took a while to put together, which is partially due to time constraints, and partially due to a minor rewrite that happened just before we started recording. Michael did really well considering it’s a long time since he’s had to really perform. The vocals were done in 2 takes too late at night, and taking that into account, they’re really quite good.

My job with this track was in more of an engineer/producer mode. I was mainly focusing on getting the track done, so I didn’t push Michael too much. I did have quite a bit of fun mixing and playing with effect levels. Anyway, listen, enjoy, blame Michael.
