After two years of production, Kristin Markiton‘s debut CD Wandering Moon is set to be released on Sunday, February 26th. The CD features Kristin performing songs written by a number of talented songwriters, including Ellis Paul, John Austin, Andrew Hyra, Bill Sheffield and Walter Sorrells. I co-produced the CD along with Kristian Bush, John Shoffner and Kristin, recording and mixing in a number of studios around Atlanta, including APC, Orphan Studio and Music by Night. Wandering Moon includes performances by Kristian Bush of Sugarland (guitar, mandolin and vocals), Mark Van Allen of Blueground Undergrass (pedal steel and dobro), David Labruyere of John Mayer’s band (bass), Brandon Bush of Train (piano and organ), Scott Patton of Sugarland (guitar), Rob Henson of Telegram (bass), and others, including myself on drums and percussion.
We have scheduled a very special show at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, GA on Sunday, February 26th to celebrate the release. The show will begin at 6:00 with a performance by Telegram, and then a set by Kristin (backed up by several of the players from Wandering Moon). And a few surprises. Tickets are available through www.eddiesattic.com for $10 ($12 day of the show). Wandering Moon will be available for purchase at the show.
For information about Kristin, including sound clips of the CD, please visit www.kristinmarkiton.com. More information will be added to the site in the coming weeks.
In other news, a few other CDs I have recently worked on are soon to be released: drums on Fokushima‘s Worried Well, percussion on Jackson Rohm‘s Four On The Floor, drums on Billy Gewin‘s Hodges Shan’t Be Shot, vibraphone on Shawn Mullins‘ 9th Ward Picking Parlor, and drums on the BoDeans tracks on the soundtrack to The Godfather of Green Bay.
In addition to Kristin’s CD release show, I’ve got some upcoming shows with the BoDeans, a CD release show with the Drexlers and a few exotic evenings with Atlanta’s favorite Hawaiian ensemble Tongo Hiti. Aloha Oe!
