Austin Truax (also known as Silvertip) has completed work on his originals release Where I’m Goin’. The recording for this CD began at Tesco Productions in the fall of 2010, and a lot of water has gone under the bridge so to speak since then. The songs were all written by Austin with the exception of “Silvertip Spurs” which was co-written by R.C. Davis. The “old country” style songs reflect family, time and eternity – each having a unique story. One of the members of the collective band has since passed on – bassist Wayne Longtin, Sr., and the disc is made in loving memory of him and another family member. Since Austin’s life had moved him to other regions of the country the project was completed at another studio. Good work hanging in there for a long period of time to give us all these pieces of your life.
Over the past few months I’ve posted notes about the latest song Justin Michael was working on at Tesco Productions. Well working around various holiday and work schedules Temporary has been released and can be viewed in video form also. The song tells us that everything – yes everything linked just to this life is temporary and therefore we should focus our resources on that which will outlive us. My family has recently experienced a situation that makes the fleeting nature of this world’s goods painfully clear. If life isn’t lived for that which is beyond, then we can count on everything we lived for ultimately disappearing as well when we leave this present journey. Thank you Justin, for reminding us there is a way to live life hereafter.
Stuart Oxford has been into Tesco Productions several times over the past few months laying down the origins of tunes he’s been writing. His stories in song include reflections on his personal experiences, faith and observations on this world and life around us. Stuart finds coming to the studio helps him hear how the songs are coming together, and having a schedule for the next session keeps him on task to practice and work on his music. He’s become a regular and we’ll see where this journey goes. Keep up the work.
