Recipe for a Healthy, Heapin' Portion of Blue-Eyed Soul Blues


The Blues (The inner most feelings)

Soul Music (The outer most feelings)

Ambiance (Music where you can hear the atmosphere.)

About The Crucible

The mixing bowl in which music is written, recorded and distributed to the public will determine the authenticity of the music. As musicians have sold their souls to the devil over the last 50 years, we have come to know music as the Music Business. Can authentic soul or blues music be found today? The thing about the blues is ... you can't stop it. And, we won't compromise it. Our Crucible: A bathtub, a boat, an attic, a basement, a bedroom ....

Mix Carefully -- Hand Stir

The problem with planning a song is that you rehearse, engineer, and produce away it's very essence -- the feeling. Familiarity breeds boredom, therefore; why not really mix it? Take real life people, put them together in a place with atmosphere, and let them make contact with the blues ... and let them find soul? As the inner feelings collide, or flow, with outer feelings, the sound is captured in a real world setting.

Why You Can't Find Music Like This

The layers upon layers of non-felt meddling that influence a typical music release prohibits the feeling from getting through. Is there anything you can do? Yes. First, make a sound that qualifies as the blues. Then, make a sound that qualifies as coming from a soul. (You can try mixing them together, and with other peoples sounds, after you loosen up a bit ... hehehehe.)
