“Love All Over” was the culmination of 2 years of work by singer/songwriter Noah Cornelius. Noah and I began working together in the summer of 2007. We put down a handful of acoustic guitar scratch tracks and experimented with different tempos and song structures. Once we had that foundation set, we gradually added other elements. Noah’s friend Jon played drums for this album and did an excellent job. We tracked and edited his parts over 2 days. The next step was bass, and I volunteered to fill in. I took a few days to work out parts and get them recorded. After Noah was satisfied, we moved to vocals.
Noah’s vocal tracking went fairly quickly. We made sure to get a really organic feel to them and added harmonies to highlight certain areas. Noah invited his 2 sisters to be a part of the album and they sang harmony on the title track, opening the album.
Noah’s good friend, (and also a Droptone client) Bob Ivers, spent a lot of time with us and added harmonica, some lead guitar, and a handful of random sound effects to the album. Jim Miller (also a Droptone client) helped track some piano, and Paul Gagner recorded a majority of the lead guitar lines. It was a fun group effort. Noah is currently working on promoting the album.
