‘Oh you want to Make a Record’…

Dan Weber Grateful Blog, News

Grateful Blog: Day 48: 1 Day to go to the release of my debut release ‘Ash and Bone’. Phew…it’s almost here. I wanted to give you a sneak peak of who’s on it. It’s really an incredible who’s who list ofPortland’s finest musicians. I cannot be Grateful enough to Rob Stroup for his stewardship in bringing this project to fruition. At some point he said ‘Oh, you want to make a RECORD’ and I knew I’d found the right guy.

Here’s a list of folks that Rob largely assembled and their contributions musically, as well as the folks who contributed their other outstanding talents, in mastering, design and photography. Look ‘em up. They’re all pretty damn amazing at what they do. The thing is, to a person, they ALL were super easy to work with and wanted to help make the best record possible. I couldn’t have done it without Rob and with so much other help. I think you’re gonna love it. I hope as much as I do.

Here they are—Drum Roll Please…
