A few weeks ago, I went over to Charles’ place and we talked for a while about this song – Slowfinger by Kenneth Noisewater, which is actually Charles on vocals, Eddie DuQuesne on guitar, Steve Foster on drums. We discussed how this song was written for a school project, the grade it received, Charles’ unique, but sometimes correlated roles as studio engineer and musician, and how that effects the music he’s involved with. Charles engineered a project for my band old Lights, which will finally be released in early 2010, so we briefly talk about that as well.
After the interview, Charles shared a piece of 5-layer chocolate cake with me that he received in the mail. It was really good.
