Project 7X in the Studio - Completing
Upcoming CD and Promotional Recordings
guys haven't been out in the clubs since the October 14 show at North Beach,
but they've been been busy in the studio - working on some new material as
well as finishing
tracks for their upcoming CD.
The CD, entitled "Project 7X - Volume One" features 11 songs - spanning
each year of the 1970s decade up to 1980. Appearances to promote the
CD will be announced after the first of the year.
"We really planned on having the CD ready a few months ago, but we got
sidetracked by some other projects," said Scott Newton. "We're also working
the details on having the album available through ITunes - and that's a
project in itself," he added.
"Volume One" will be distributed by Rubber Wombat Records, and will be
available from the 7X Store on this website.
On December 3, 7X conducted a marathon recording session in which every
song in their catalog was recorded. The nearly 7 hour session took
place at the studios of APEX Media Solutions.
"We're putting together some new promotional materials aimed at the
festival circuit next summer and a lot of the material we recorded last
Sunday will be used for that purpose. Since we didn't know yet which
material we'd be using - we just recorded it all. That was quite of a
long day," Newton explained.
The session was engineered by long time friend Greg Errandi (pictured on
the right). Thanks Greg for the heroic effort!

***** Very Important Notes on
First...the Mapquest map incorrectly indicates that Cisco
Lake Resort is located on "Big Lake" instead of "Cisco Lake." So don't let that
cause any confusion! Secondly...we found the Mapquest directions from
Chicago really take the round-about way to Cisco Lake Resort. We
suggest you first get the directions to Watersmeet, Michigan - then get
directions from Watersmeet to the resort, which is located at N3994 Cisco
Lake Road, Watersmeet, Michigan.
If you have additional questions, please contact Project 7X through the

Project 7X Show Prep and Rehearsals Near
New CD in Production
Now that Vern has come on board, the guys are just about finished with
their initial rehearsals. The upcoming shows for the Fall and Winter will
soon be announced.
"We just had a full-volume rehearsal with Vern last weekend, and man are
we loud," Scott said. Obviously, the group was not practicing the acoustic
version of the show.
As for recording, Scott and Steve are scheduled to begin initial
production on the first Project7X audio CD.
"What we're talking about doing is to have 10 songs on the CD from the
show - one from each year of the decade," Scott explained. "Hopefully
shouldn't take too long because all the core structures of the songs were
produced in ProTools when I arranged the show - and we've got all the
parts worked out from the rehearsals. So Steve and I will probably
start with the guitar parts - then record Sam and Vern at the same time -
then finish with vocals."
