Socadia – “More Than Meets The I”

Socadia has released a new single, “More Than Meets The I.” The track marks my first collaboration with the group since 2011’s “In Your Dreams.”

This was a very special recording session for all of us. I first met Justin “JC” Gariano back in 2009, while I was a member of Socadia. He was really excited about working with the band, but the timing never worked. As the years went by, I left Socadia and began working more and more as a session musician, including several records Justin was producing.

Fast forward to today, Justin and I run a recording studio together, TreeHaus Recording. And here we are, finally working on the session that brought us all together in the first place. Enjoy!

The Story of …. Socadia’s “The End of the World”

The End of the World,” by Socadia, was released Feb 24, 2010 on the [trees for the forest] EP.

“The End of the World” (“EotW”), was the opening track on [trees]. It started as an instrumental demo track called “Hermes” that László Bolender had written and recorded years earlier, prior to Socadia. All of the keys, most of the guitars, and the outro drum programming you hear on “EotW” are from the “Hermes” recording.

“EotW” was still a work in progress when we recorded all the live drums for the [trees] EP, and, at that time, we figured the track would only have programmed drums throughout.

Stephan Martin wrote all the verse lyrics/melody, and I wrote the chorus lyrics/melody. Stephan added his signature arpeggiated, dreamy guitar licks, and I got to work programming all the drums.

The chorus was now begging for live drums over the programming, but we didn’t have the money to go back into a recording studio. I ended up slicing the live drums from another [trees] track, “The Warning,” and painstakingly editing together the drum part, note by note, into the entirely different beat you hear in “EotW.”

The brilliant Matt Mcjunkins layed down the bass guitar, and the song was mixed and mastered by Masaki Liu.

“End of the World” is one of my favorite Socadia tracks, and one I always had insane amounts of fun playing live.
