Laurie Lewis & the Right Hands
The Golden West
"Your Eyes" (Listen)
For three days in July of 2005, we five (Tom Rozum, Scott Huffman, Craig Smith, Todd Phillips, and me) lived together in the guest house at Sage Arts Studio outside Arlington, WA and recorded these songs.
We had intended to be more prepared when we got there, but life in the twenty-first century being what it is, we just showed up with a general idea of what songs we could do and no arrangements to speak of.
Over the course of the three days, we played, recorded, cooked and ate together, walked in the woods, stared at the nearby Stillaguamish River, and played some more. Everything seemed so fresh and enticing to us, hearing and playing the majority of these tunes for the first time as a group.
