Popular Key West singer/songwriter Jeff Clark was in studio Sunday January 22 to record a new album. Clark decided to record a Live album with an all-star band and a Live studio audience. On Sunday January 22, 2017 Clark and his all-star band set up to record at The Backroom Studios in The Key West Theater on Eaton Street. Tickets to be part of the Live audience were purchased by approximately thirty people.
The thirty fortunate folks got to witness and be part of the recording process in a very unique setting. Who And Where in Key West’s Ben Solove and Paul Blatt were two of the fortunate ones in attendance for this memorable and intimate recording experience.
The band consisted of Jeff and five diverse and extremely talented musicians. Joining Clark were Andy Westcott, a world class musician, on lead guitar, Key West legend Wayne Hammond on bass, incredibly talented Key West newcomer Hiram Garzaro on drums and two talented artists who make their home in Prague, Czech Republic, Turner Harrison on rhythm guitar/ harmonica/vocals, and Martin Manouche O’Horse on violin. Harrison and O’Horse were in town on a visit.
Clark led the band in a casual, yet professional display of phenomenal music. The set consisted of twelve songs. The audience was encouraged to cheer and act as if they were attending a normal concert performance. The set was nothing short of exceptional. Clark’s set list of all originals included mainly new or never before recoded songs, as well as a few old favorites.
The new album to be title ‘My Last CD’ will be ready to go sometime in early Spring. Fret not from the title. Clark says he chose the title because it will be his last actual CD. “Nobody makes CDs anymore,” Clark said with a grin. “This isn’t my last album, just my last CD.”
Positive vibe songs, creative lyricism, and diverse styles make Clark a unique and popular artist. The new originals are exactly what Clark’s fans have come to expect from this one of a kind talent. This album promises to be fantastic.
This was a special night in a very unique setting. The vibe from the intimate show will certainly shine through on the final mix and recording. Who And Where In Key West will certainly keep you posted on the release date.
