Flat out right now finishing of my new album- sounding so good. This week I'm off to America to work in Nashville again with the very talented Marti Frederiksen.
Have a safe trip Damien.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Martin Harold Frederiksen (born July 1, 1962) is an American songwriter, record producer, and musician. He writes and produces music primarily in rock, country, and pop. He is best known for his work with many hard rock bands including Daughtry, Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Fuel, Mötley Crüe, Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner, Buckcherry, Black Veil Brides and film soundtracks. Career With Aerosmith
Frederiksen has worked with Aerosmith since the mid-1990s. He is one of the "Boneyard Boys", the collaborative group of musicians responsible for much of the creative, songwriting, and production efforts in Aerosmith; Mark Hudson, Steven Tyler, and Joe Perry are the other members of this group.
Frederiksen has co-written several of Aerosmith's songs since the mid-1990s, including four of the songs on 1997's Nine Lives (including the single "Nine Lives"), ten of the songs on 2001's Just Push Play (including the singles "Jaded", "Fly Away From Here", and "Sunshine"), both of the new songs on 2002's O, Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits (including the single "Girls of Summer"), and the lone original track on the 2004 cover album Honkin' on Bobo ("The Grind").
Again, we don't know that's what he's doing, but it's sounding more and more like it.
Country is a broad genre though, it encompasses anything from rocky to acoustic sounds. It may suit his pure voice and his emotionality because it's mainly "misery" songs, lost love etc. Some of it I can tolerate, but not much. Sigh.
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek Deb ha perish the thought Thanks for that info Braffy...as you know I'm a huge fan of Def Leppard and like a few of Aerosmith's, some of Daughtry and Foreigner so fingers are crossed
Deep down you know you can be remarkable. You shouldn't settle for anything less than your best self, reaching ever closer to your potential - whether as a leader or in any other part of your life.
Vote for DLO & damienleith.net
lol & meanwhile my mind went straight to inner urban/industrial when I saw the check shirt teamed with teh rock jeans & shoes, I was surprised when I saw all the country discussion! Can't wait to hear all about the new album & what style it actually is!!
As Brian says, Damien is sounding really happy about it and that's most exciting of all as he sounds like he's in his stride at the moment. Hope we will hear more soon, so fabulous for Damien there's another trip to Nashville involved! What a hub to be recording in, just imagining the amazing people he must be meeting and working with!!!
