Harmony Vocals for New CD

I flew to Nashville to participate in the April 23, 2013 recording session to have female harmony vocals added to five of the songs on my new Dusty Lawn Chairs CD. Greg Strizek, the owner of Verge Recording, had arranged for Tania Hancheroff, an amazing vocalist, to sing harmony vocals. Tania has sung harmony vocals on the records of Alan Jackson, Kenny Rogers, Brad Paisley, Johnny Mathis, Jo Dee Messina, and Randy Travis, to name just a few. Check out her credits at http://www.allmusic.com/artist/tania-hancheroff-mn0000883741/credits. She made it look so easy! Then the next day Greg mixed in Tania's harmony vocals, and also the harmony vocals that I had sung myself on four songs and brought with us on disc. Then Greg finished up the mixing on all 15 songs and did some tweaking that I requested. He did an awesome job of mixing the songs! Check out the photos in the photo gallery of Tania and Greg. We headed back home and listened to the songs over the weekend, and then asked Greg to make one little change. When we were happy with everything, Greg walked the songs over to Joe Palmaccio at The Place for Mastering, and Joe did a wonderful job of mastering the whole album. Now all we have left to do is the artwork, and we're done!
