Forecast the album was released 3 years ago today. Originally intended as a “solo” album, this recording project inspired a monthly residency @the5spotnashville in 2019, which inspired the formation of our band/musical collective which we call “John Mailander’s Forecast”, which inspired last year’s album “Look Closer” (and accompanying EP “Sketches, Vol. 1”), which inspired another series of local shows this past year, a tour opening for @brucehornsby last Fall, and a lot more music as a band on the horizon.

I’m so truly grateful to all of you who have supported this project, listened to the albums, and come to see us live. Looking forward to sharing more Forecast music with you in 2022!

Full album credits below.

PS - Our next live show will be January 31st @deeslounge615 with @jessnolanmusic!

The album Forecast features:
@royalmasat - Bass
@stargel90 - Guitar
@beelarr - Drums
@chrismillerjazz - Tenor Saxophone
@chris__lippincott - Pedal Steel
Engineered and mixed by @gravitybootsrecording.
Mastered by @danknobler.

The cover art for all of the Forecast recordings was painted by @meganlightell.

Forecast is a @nineathensmusic project.

New year, new gear. ✨I know I’m not the only electronics nerd who opens up a new piece of gear just to check out the inside , right? 🤓 This Neve-style preamp fills a niche that my API’s and Demeter don’t already.

Jimi Hendrix is a huge part of why I became a recording engineer. As a kid, I listened to his guitar fly around the room to outer space and back while I read in the liner notes of my Electric Ladyland cassette about things they did in the studio to get some of those sounds. That was when I began to learn about what a recording engineer is and does - and what a creative craft it can be. - Happy Birthday, Jimi. Fly on. 🪐🌌💫

Paper Wings Troubled Soul Live on Ditty TV

I had the pleasure of recording these talented folks on location and the finished product is out now! It's a beautiful song and performance!
For the technologically curious: This was a battery powered endeavor due to the location, so I borrowed my wife's Zoom U-24 interface to use with my laptop. The mics are a vintage AKG C414 (guitar) and Shure KSM 27 (banjo).

On the way back from The SteelDrivers CO tour we drove right past Mt. Royal, so I’ve been reminiscing about climbing this 1500ft route, “Royal Flush,” a couple years ago with Aaron Sefton. A storm rolled in when we were almost to the top, so it’s still on the tick list. It was shining with fresh snow yesterday.

Forecast, by John Mailander

New music out today from John Mailander and a release show tonight at the Basement! This might be your perfect sunny winter day playlist right here. Truly top-notch musicians explore beautiful compositions and dynamic arrangements, together. And if that's something you're into, see them do a whole new take on it at 7pm tonight! I'm predicting some pretty heavy jams...

We recorded these songs live at SoundWave with only a few overdubs. The sound of the room is featured and the interaction of the musicians with each other makes the performances especially engaging.

Our new album, Look Closer, is now available everywhere! I am so proud of this music and the collective spirit of this project, and am so happy to share it with you all today. Look Closer was recorded over July 4th weekend, 2020, live in one room, with great safety precautions, masks, and distancing. Due to the pandemic, many of us had not had an opportunity to play music live with others in months. This four-day session was a joyous rediscovery and mediation on musical connection and purpose. Look Closer features the musicianship of: Ethan Jodziewicz - Bass Chris Lippincott - Pedal Steel / Wurlitzer Mark Raudabaugh - Drums Jake Stargel - Guitar David Williford - Tenor Saxophone / Bass Clarinet Kristina Train - Vocals Maya de Vitry - Vocals The music was arranged as a group collectively during the sessions. Huge thank you to Daniel Rice of Gravity Boots Recording who engineered and mixed the album and helped every step of the way. The cover artwork was painted by Megan Lightell Studio, whose art has become an integral part of the Forecast project and vision. Forecast is a Nine Athens Music project. Today is #bandcampfriday - The perfect day to order Look Closer on Vinyl or CD! Link below. Thank you for your support, and I hope you find some joy in this album. https://johnmailander.bandcamp.com/album/look-closer

This song continues to resonate with us as a statement of hope and companionship in the face of pain and darkness. “Troubled Soul” is an ode to the beautiful misfits and outsiders in this world- to all who struggle and seek meaning in life.
