The Reverend John DeLore and I are honored to contribute a song to this amazing compilation with our heroes as Roseanne Cash, Loudon Wainwright and Richard Thompson, to new name a few.
I love this project! Within moments of performing our song, we got to hear the recording back to us from the acetate we recorded to! It was like we took a time machine back to the 30’s. Such a kick!
Here’s more about The 78 Project:
The 78 Project is a documentary and recording journey inspired by Alan Lomax and his quest to capture music where it lived throughout the early 20th century. Our project brings the spirit of his work into the present as we pair breakthrough musicians with the songs and the fascinating recording technology of the past. With just one microphone, one authentic 1930′s Presto direct-to-acetate disk recorder, and one blank lacquer disc, musicians are given one take to cut a record anywhere they choose. What we have found is that the film, music and feelings that result defy space and time, living music inspired by ghosts.
