Boyd, Esquire Mag ... the beat goes on

Thaddeus, Davis & Daniel spent last week late night recording some soundtrack music with Boyd Tinsley. Boyd is the fiddlist (some call it a violin) from Dave Matthews Band (small, local-ish band) and one hell of guy. Imagine a sage weightlifter with a fiddle in one hand, a tennis racket in the other drinking a quad-shot latte. That requires about 3 too many hands, but that's pretty much Boyd. It was a wildly creative midnight oil session where we usually started recording around 1am and rolled out with the sun up and the newspaper on the front stoop. Shawn Smith stopped by for some gorgeous vocal flourishments.

In other news, Reggie was awarded one of the prestigious Esquire Magazine 2008 Genius awards. Go Reggie! Reg is also sleeping in my basement in Seattle as I type. Imagine a bearded Reggie sleeping in a genetically bald man's basement apartment sharing a painfully slow wireless internet connection. Welcome to our world. Here's a link to the Esquire article (and an image of the print version).

    Can you say what the soundtrack is for? Like Boyd's work with DMB, love you guys, and Shawn Smith has the voice of an angel. Sounds like a fun collaboration.

    Sure thing, Jeff. I have no idea what it will be used for or when it will come out. But we'll let folks know here.
