Three weeks after we met, we performed together for the first time in Sandwich, Illinois at the Village Square open mike and that night Comfort Food was born. We’ve spent the last five years practicing, writing songs and performing together.
We’d been threatening to start work on our first album for the last couple years and after I started getting the hang of playing a little lead guitar we felt we were ready. Before we even began recording we got a surprise Christmas gift from Allan Shaw when he asked us if we’d be interested in having Wind River Records release our album. Of course you can guess the answer.
In February of this year we finally started recording in our home studio and in a couple months had the recording part finished. Vicki discovered a great studio just blocks from our house (Horse-Drawn Productions) where we had the CD mixed and mastered. We decided to go with five original songs each and four covers, including a Michael Smith song (Restless Love). Including a Michael Smith tune is a tradition I established with my first two CDs and one we intend to continue.
So, our first album, self-titled, is to be released in September. We hope you enjoy it and find your way to one of our concerts sometime – we’d love to see you. Bon appetite!
