Jac Dalton’s Icarus Completed
After a year of writing, recording and mixing, Icarus has become a reality. The first promo run was shipped by Perth’s ProCopy in late January, and is currently going out to radio and other media.
As mixing was about to get underway at Ardent Studios in Memphis, an unexpected addition to the team appeared in the form of multi Grammy Award winning engineer John Hampton. “Hamp” took the helm at the SSL console for the majority of the mixing sessions whilst Darren Mullan and Gregg Brown hashed out the finer details of the production and assistant ninjaneer Jason Gillespie ran the ProTools rig. Every bit of outboard gear that wasn’t nailed down in the other studios was conscripted for the duration of the Icarus dates in Studio B. The finished mixes were then sent to Nashville, where another Grammy winner, Richard Dodd was the mastering engineer.
Negotiations are currently underway with interested parties regarding Australian distribution and release, the album is now available on iTunes and will soon be on other reputable download sites. While the Jac Dalton Band is being convened and preparing for rehearsal, Jac himself is due back in the US for meetings and promo appearances before returning to Oz to join his band mates in getting the songs roadworthy in a show that will do the highly-anticipated Icarus justice.
More information and an Mp3 sampler track can be found on the Jac Dalton website and MySpace page. Jac and Graham have also appeared on Global Thunda Network in an exclusive album preview and interview with GTN’s Donna G. (also a Jac Dalton Band member) and Nana Mex.
