About his new record "I Found The Sun Again" (Per Steve), “ALL tracks were cut LIVE - no clix - no fix - No rehearsal - one run thru - and record and the whole record was take 2. I did double a few guitar parts and ‘produced up’ a few tunes that are obvious but in the same time frame.I recorded the lead vocal right after we got the take same day.One song a day. Joe took it home and did some background vocals but that’s it.I wanted to make as honest a record as I could in 2020 with 1970's inspiration, recording values, and techniques with a modern sound”.
