'Nice' was recorded backwards according to most album standards. I recorded entire album's melodies in my head putting down the vocal parts first a capella to a click track.
I worked with Adrian Robles on arranging my piano and guitar parts. And wrote the string parts I heard in my head. Then, we recorded bass, cello, violin, and lastly drums.
This whole album was a bunch of strangers, amazing people dropping by for an afternoon, trying out new and strange things and offering their talents for the price of a few beers. I am so grateful that I was able to lay out ideas in the form of my first album and that these people helped me do that.
The Ann Arbor and Detroit music scene is a plethora of energy and I was blessed to be able to live there for a short period of time and create this album there.
