Well, now that we have a winner for the Hockey Night in Canada Anthem Challenge, i can take my muzzle off! This was a really fun gig, getting to work closely with Bob Rock for a week on such a widely watched national event. It was like the best day job ever: 5 days, 5 tracks…one a day. In the morning we recorded the rhythm section…in the afternoon we recorded the orchestra…..around 4 were the celebrity overdubs….mix and outta there by 8! Next day, same thing! It’s not too often you get to do that everyday of the week….a film score maybe, but that’s different again. I thought all the Top 5 were great, and i’m very pleased that Canadian Gold by Colin Oberst won. The minute i heard the track I thought “this could go Celtic”….then Steve Sloan the producer recommended the MudMen, and we were off. Congrats to the rest of the Top 5, all great entries. Now, i’m off to Rome for a week…..
We Have A Winner!!
