HOUSTON, TX (PRWEB) May 13, 2006
Austin singer/songwriter Maggie Walters has just completed recording her latest EP at the legendary SugarHill Recording Studios with renowned producer Dan Workman (ZZ Top, Destiny’s Child, Sarah Sharp). The EP was released in March 2006 coinciding with her SXSW showcase this year where she performed with Dan Workman and her band.
Although Maggie Walters has only been performing for the past few years, she has already raked up plenty of praise from Austin Chronicle, Austin-American Statesman and Texas Music Magazine.
This was her first collaboration with Dan Workman, “Dan contacted me after SXSW 2005 about doing a project together. I knew that technically and artistically, this would be a very different experience in recording”, commented Walters on her meeting with Dan Workman.
Workman is a veteran in the Houston music scene, in addition to co-owning one of the oldest recording studios in US music history, the legendary SugarHill Recording Studios, Dan is notorious for his production work, particularly with singer/songwriters such as Winter Wallace and Sarah Sharp. He is also known for producing Houston acclaimed, indie brit-rock band Southern Backtones.
“We mixed strange techniques with conventional techniques---played lots of casios and made loops with our voices…We recorded tambourines, playing them while walking all around the room, then recorded them again, and again, and again, until there were about a million tambourines. That is one of my favorite memories,” added Walters.
Musicians on the EP included Tyson Sheth on drums, Austin bassist George Reiff who has worked Kelly Willis, Chris Robinson and Charlie Sexton, and all other instruments were played by Dan Workman and Maggie Walters.
Walters has no plans for a CD release, but does plan to feature the EP songs on her future album.
Moreover, one of the songs off of the EP, Real Life Cowboy, was recently featured on CNBC's new show American Made and aired May 1st, 2006.
