I wrote and recorded Baptized In Ice during 2011-2012 in my rehearsal space at City Sound in Minneapolis, MN sometimes doing vocals in my apartment since the views and the smells were way better. I was going for a raw feel always taking a first take with good energy over a later take with better technique which leaves many imperfections in the tracks but I believe they stand stronger in this regard.
For all the tracks I used a PDP drum set, an Ampeg SVT3 bass rig with a Fender Jazz Bass, a Gibson Les Paul, Fender Stratocaster, Fender Telecaster, and two of the best recording amps out there being a Savage Macht 12 and a true vintage 1965 Fender Twin Reverb.
This record would not have been possible without the un-wavered love and support of the greatest life partner/wife a guy could have and I dedicate this to my sweet Sarah Martinez. Not to mention she gave me the title of the record and a lyric in the song Nightly Chivalry.
Down through the ages my Body Of Work will be the way my life is best described. Thanks for listening!
