I'm brand new, so go easy on me ;)
I'm a singer from Oregon, USA who is in the beginning stages of putting together a demo (trad Irish/Scottish music), and as it seems there are quite a few experienced folk recording artists on this site, I thought I'd send out a general call for any advice or warnings *grin*. When I say "beginning stages," incidentally, I mean "Gee, I've been wanting to do this for a while, why don't I get serious?" I'm researching studio rates and compiling my song repertoire at the moment; I admit I know almost nothing about the practical aspects of the business, though a close friend who does have experience is going to help me. Anyway, if anyone has suggestions for me, please post them or send me a message. Thanks--this is a great site!
