Say’s Steven Foxbury of the session, “Sometimes we do these sessions and all of the interactions are understandably businesslike. Such was not the case with Matthew Ryan and his de facto bandmates TC Davis and Corey Gray of The Sparrows. We all hit it off immediately and the result was a damn fine (and mighty fun) night of recording these fantastic songs. “Boxers” and “Then She Threw Me Like A Hand Grenade” are both off of Ryan’s new release, which is also titled “Boxers”. As evidenced by these songs, the record is dynamite!”

“We used an interesting array of Peluso mics for these songs. For starters, we used a modified P-49ms that in addition to a standard 49 side-addressed capsule, it features a fixed mid capsule that points toward the top of the mic. Because Matthew plays with his guitar slung low, we blended the side capsule with audio from my 2247se. I also have their P-12 picking up drums and backing vocals.”

All audio for Yellow Couch Sessions is recorded and mixed by Steven Foxbury of Yellow Couch Studio. Video for Matthew Ryan was shot and edited by Matt Dayak. Thanks, as always to the friends and sponsors who help make this possible. Please click some of their links below:
