I made my recent trip to Indiana for a number of reasons, one being to trade recording/mixing time for songwriting with longtime collaborator Nathan Butler. I help the guy write some tunes, he helps me get some of my recent ones recorded. He ended up with 4 or 5 songs written and I got rough versions of 4 of my new songs recorded. I hope to make them available in some format before too long. It was hard and rewarding work that I was privileged to be able to do. Add to that getting to see my nephew and it made for a fabulous trip.
