WHAT A DAY! Just back from a full days work at the recording studio. Managed to get 1 song and 1 Instrumental recorded for THE ALBUM, and 1 song and instrumental to go elsewhere.
However had a really SUPERNATURAL experience while there, and on the way home ....
I had felt a presence around the studio most of the day. Which has never happened to me their before. Whist recording an instrument to be added to 1 of the instrumentals, I sensed a Mans presence hanging around the doorway. He was a tall, dark haired man, who sensed the producers attempts to get the chorus just right - who like me, wants to give of his best. I had no idea who he was? - but I felt he was so proud of the producer at his work, at his musicianship and his studio. I couldn't say anything to the producer at the time, in case I put him off - but knew he was there to encourage him- and not to give up. Could sense he had a great admiration of him.
Personally I thought it may have been a father, or late male relative of his.
Then I decided after he had finished to talk the bull by the horns - so to speak- and asked him had he'd lost a male family relative, or a friend recently??? I was worried in case he thought I was a Nut Job! lol, but was very surprised at his reply.
Since I don't keep up with the latest gossip I hadn't heard that CLIFF LEDGER (From the North Ireland- but recently living in Spain) a C/W singer and guitarist had passed away Friday 3rd July - 3 days ago. Though elderly, was dark haired in his prime. Was described as a Tall Man, who had heard about the producer for quite some time and very much wanted to meet him- managed to meet last year in Spain. Their one and only encounter :-( Was very impressed by the produce's skills and told him so.
So the funeral would have been today in Spain. I guess he wanted to get a message to the producer (since I was in the studio with him today - he used me to pass it on ) and the only thing I knew about this man was had heard his name mentioned a few years back.
So guess that freaked me.
And the other thing that startled me was when on the way home listening to One of the CDs in particular, the CD faded out strangely, thought I would have to contact the studio so played it again several more times - but levels were fine- guess someone want to get my attention. Wondering who???This happened during and just after the recording of my country & western version of my song "You Feed My Adrenalin Rush", this version entitled "Rushing Around" Enjoy...
