“The Sound of Us” is earmarked to be another single off of the upcoming album, Dim the Lights. It features music and lyrics by Prin, piano and vocals by Prin, drums by Doug Yowell, guitars by Thad DeBrock, bass by Jonathan Maron and vocal production by Mark Plati. It was recorded at The Bunker Studio in Brooklyn and Alice’s Restaurant in Manhattan. It’s one of my favorite tracks from the album.

I truly enjoy arranging songs in my head and don’t typically get the chance to explore production since I work alone as an independent songwriter. Using GarageBand for the first time was very fun and made me realize that it is okay to be a little less “organic” when showcasing my songwriting. When I write piano and vocal tracks only, it is hard for others to hear the genre I intend or the instrumentation I think has potential for a song. This really made me feel good about the upcoming album, too, since people will get to hear why I refer to myself as “genre homeless.”

This song is called “Hiding” and I used a house drum set to create the groove. I did input all of the sounds and tried to take a stab at mixing – lol – eek! For anyone who knows me and my NYC roots, house music is a big influence in my idea of percussion sounds. I think it sounds pretty cool for a first try, and I’m already incorporating the app into my songwriting routines. 🙂
