Springdale Quartet have been with Evergroove long enough that they are no longer clients – no, sir. They are family. For their second official release we talked about doing something slightly different. The topic of hiring a Producer came up and we instantly thought of friend, and Evergroove “family” member Alan Evans of the legendary Soul/Funk bands Soulive, and the Alan Evans Trio.
We had a meeting with Alan via Skype and talked about the record. Everyone hit it off instantly and the gears started turning. Soon after the meeting Springdale Quartet booked Evergroove Studio for a pre-production demo that they could send to Alan so that he could start getting ideas and making suggestions on how to bring the very best out of the tunes.
Springdale Quartet flew Alan into Colorado and we all holed up at Evergroove for a week to focus on tracking all the tunes. Chase took rough mixes back to his condo in Boulder for some basic overdubs. The files were then sent to Alan and he mixed the record at Playonbrother Studios (his home studio located in Hatfield, MA).
The record is titled Heist and you can buy it on vinyl, CD, or download from Springdale Quartet’s Bandcamp page.
