Calvosa Sullivan Project demo is almost ready!

Back in late November 2009 I went into the studio with Kat Calvosa to record a demo for our ongoing collaboration, aptly titled the Calvosa Sullivan Project.  It’s a particularly fun project for me because I play mostly piano in this band, as well as being an outlet for the pop side of my brain.  We’ve been performing off and on in NYC (and also a very memorable house party in NH) for a little over a year now, and Kat and I have decided to take it up a notch with this demo – hopefully we can break some new ground in terms of performance spaces (Rockwood Music Hall is at the top of our list!).  Here is a track from the demo, which includes Kat Calvosa, vocals; Travis Sullivan, piano; Paul Orbell, guitar; Yoshi Waki, bass; Brian Fishler, drums, mixed by Sam Minae and recorded at Astoria Soundworks Studio:

Candy Store

One of the things I like about this collaboration with Kat is how varied our approach is to writing this music.  For almost every song there is a slightly different process.  For “Candy Store,” Kat already had the basic structure and lyrics set when she showed it to me – I assisted with tweaking a few chords and contributed some harmonic ideas for the chorus.
