Watered Down Whiskey (Kristen Brassel)

Hello all, I've been lurking around here long enough but have never really contributed much to the cause. Most of the stuff that I've tracked has been in a schoolhouse environment, so nothing commercial in that department. Anyways, what I DO have are some tracks from those days to share with you wonderful people.

This artist's name is Kristen Brassel, a local to the Nashville area and a graduated classmate of mine. she's currently on the circuit and was gracious enough to come into the studio to let me record her. We assembled some musicians, went over the song about 4 times, and pressed that big red button. I lot of my intentions were compromised during the tracking process due to having to share those responsibilities with two other engineers. Not the best scenario, but I'll share better tracks later.

This song is called "Watered Down Whiskey", it began as a country song but slowly morphed into a rock song.
BPM is 90, key is in F# (?) if I remember right? I'll update if this isn't the case.

I just realized that this quite a late reply, but anyway, here's my take on the song.

The vocals got just slightly lost in the mix, and it could be little bit more polished, but overall I'm happy with the result

Enjoy!

P.S. If someone explained to me how the "Soundcloud (embeds single track" -button works, I would be happy to do it.

Hi everyone, and thank you IronOak Sound for sharing this wonderful song. You can count me as a Kristen Brassel fan now :)
This is my first attempt mixing in this genre, I am used to mix metal stuff.
I enjoyed so much these past couple of hours working on this song. I would love to hear what you think of it.
Thank you!

Hi GrafX! Thanks for the kind words! Kristen is an amazing artist that has an incredible voice that defied how little she is, and is a doll in the studio. She just released her EP, Love and Lightni... (read more)

Thanks for this song, very nice mixing it. 

I struggled a bit with the violin, its a bit buried sometimes, and the kick I really found difficult for some reason. 
Tried to get it as rounded as possible with some click to it, without it being so pokey.  I don't mean it was bad to begin with, just couldn't seem to eq it properly :) Hopefully its okay.

Really good song  though.

Sounds very good, a full sound.  Struggling really to think of improvements to be honest :)

Hah, I forgot about this.

I got about as far as this. I have a thing for acoustic versions of tracks. I've done it before and it wasn't very popular. Oh well. I don't always do it, only when I start throwing a mix together and think I can make it work.

Hey, 

The drums sound good, the cymbals especially seem very smooth, not harsh.  Kick has got some punch :)
The instrument balance seems pretty good, perhaps the violins could perhap... (read more)
