HANSON: Before You Burnout

By | May 29, 2020


All week there has been music making for the new EP, some big songs, some small. In this pic Taylor lays down a solo piano for the tune All I Know. Look out for more Sound Bites from the making of posted daily till the end of the month.


This week has been all about the Continental Breakfast EP, and going from song ideas to finished recordings. Every creative project presents its own set of challenges and this year the biggest one might simply be length. There is a huge difference between recording five songs and recording seven, and it is more than simply getting them written, but being able to stay both productive and flexible when much of the music is being written and recorded with little or no pre-production or time to collect your thoughts.  We have deep love of recording this way, but it is an exercise driven by instinct, and you can only operate without a road map for so long before you simply burnout.

If you have been checking the Hanson.net blog every day and watching the CBIB Sound Bites, you have heard clips and parts from almost every song, but it is still fun to look at the titles side by side and get a feel for the storyies and messages captured within.

We hope you have all been enjoying the HANSON Time Podcast. Yesterday we posted our fourth episode and this theme went back two decades to the 2.0 EP.  We love getting the community involved in each episode both in picking members from different parts of the globe to join us in a conversation on each episode, but also getting the full community to vote on themes.  We are going to be continuing to post new episodes every Thursday through June, with the themes you voted on that you’d like to hear, and by association the music you would like us to play.

For 20 years, Hanson.net has been about bringing people together all around the world. We won’t be on the road touring for some months, but we’re gonna keep sharing all the creative projects we’re building.

Isaac, Taylor And Zac
