On The Run – Jona’s Story

There are many great stories in the Bible. Stories about people, stories about how they struggle with life, with their families, with their beliefs. Here’s one I always liked a lot: the story of Jona. You know, the guy swallowed by a big fish. Now, there are many people who say this could never have happened but even in our modern times this happens. There’s even proof of it. So, believe it or not.. in the end, it is a great story.

FREE DOWNLOAD

While driving back from work the first lines of this song ‘came to me’ so I pulled over the car, grabbed the smartphone and recorded the lines. Back home I wrote the other verses. Over the past few days I’ve been working on recording it. I wanted it to be a simple, straight forward, ‘rock song’. I also wanted to use a piece of software I’ve been testing for some time now, AVL Drums. It’s a great drum program, works perfect in Ardour and also works fine in Mixbus5.

The song is available as a free download at Soundcloud.

RECORDING

Some about this recording: it was recorded and mixed using Mixbus5 and AVLDrums. AVLDrums is a great, free, drumkit available for Ardour and Mixbus. I use my Digitech TRIO most of the time for drums, but AVLDrums is more flexible since I can program (and edit it later afterwards) it using a midi-track. It’s got great drumkits availble in different settings.

Bass, Guitars and Vocals are all by me (Rudy). For the vocals I used my MXL770 Studio Condenser; Bass is my Harley Benton Bass guitar and I’ve used my Harley Benton Telecaster for the guitars. For the guitar I used the JoYo American as an amp simulator. My all time favorite for Fender-like guitars.

Although I sometimes still use Ardour, Mixbus5 is now my default ‘workhorse’ when recording and mixing. Mixbus5 offers me a great recording environment, and many, MANY, on-board tools like compression, EQ, Limiter and more including a huge load of plugins. Apart from that, it can of course also use all the plugins I used in Ardour. Apart from the new software, the new studio also helps a lot for creating better recordings. My workflow is now so much better!

Anyway — hope you like the song! It’s a freebie, so feel free to download.

No Limit On Love – New Single

No Limit (On Love) is the new single by the Solid Rock Blues Band home recording project. A lovesong, but not the standard lovesong. Fast and up-tempo power chords blues-rock.

There ain’t No Limit On Love. You can’t get no speeding ticket for loving someone so much it’s almost illegal, right? All right! So here’s our new track “No Limit (On Love)”. You can listen for free on SoundCloud, AudioMack and BandCamp.

The song was written and recorded in high speed, just as the song itself is in high speed. It took only two days to write the lyrics and music and record and mix it(!) that doesn’t make it a substandard songs. Some awesome songs were written in studio’s “on the spot”. Remember the story about U2’s album “October”? The lyrics (for some songs) were lost (stolen), so Bono had to write some lyrics while they were in the studio!

It’s a fast song, power-chords based and recorded at the Zolderstudio Homerecording Studio. It probably would fit the Bluesrock bag or Rock and Roll. Anyway – it’s about the favorite theme of most people: Love. And this is a love-song that isn’t about Red Roses and fast heartbeats.

Like it? You can download a HQ Audio version from BandCamp for only US$ 0.70.

Rock & Roll Suits My Soul

Classic Chrisitan Rock with a heavy blues touch and lyrics rooted in the early 70’s and 80’s Christian Rock music. That’s “Rock & Roll Suits My Soul”. A free download available at AudioMack and SoundCloud.

The song was recorded and mixed at the ZolderStudio HomeStudio and will be part of the upcoming “Radio Rejects” album. An ongoing project of songs available online only trough SoundCloud and Audiomack at the moment.

 

 

Still in doubt if it should be a short 6 track EP or an album with more tracks. Time is limited, but there’s also no rush to publish a new album. For now, it’s an online, slowly growing, project. The tracks included in the project are (also) available on SoundCloud as well as Audiomack.
