We've just tracked the last song. All of the guitar and vocal parts are complete and all five songs are done lyrically. Our goal is to be done tracking live instruments by the end of this week! Brian Ricke has a connection with the Minnesota Orchestra, so we'll be bringing in a professional cello player for this last song. She comes down to record on Wednesday.

Music producer Mike Graff finished up a couple synth parts for two other songs and we're so happy with how they turned out! Subtle. Simple. He really bought into the vision that we have for this record and he knew exactly what to add to serve the message of each song. Because, honestly, that's what it's all about. Serving the message of the song.

The whole goal of RONES is to make creative music that's vulnerable enough to showcase the human condition. Because once we see ourselves as we truly are, we begin to understand how much God loves us and how deeply involved He is with ALL of his people. Music is the universal language and we want to make it for ALL people.

We couldn't be more excited to show you what we've been working on. It's a privilege to even be in the same room as these talented musical minds. We give God all the glory for how he's brought us together in the creation of this record. Thanks for taking an interest in our music.

We've finally starting breathing online.

Currently, we are in the studio process finishing up the tracking stage. Four songs of the five something songs are done lyrically and now we're diving into some hard core music production. The bone structure of these songs are in place; it will just take a rib or two from something else to make it complete. A cello part here. Some bells over there. It's surreal to just hear these ideas come alive. They're starting to talk back.

A few weeks ago we brought in a few string players. Heavens. What an inspiring time. We're so excited to get this project off our laptops and into your hands.

Here's what to expect in the next 2 to 3 months. As previously said, we're almost done tracking. After that's done, we'll move to the mixing stage. And then mastering. Once mastering is completely done and we're satisfied with what we have, we'll release the first project.

It's called the THE DINKYTOWN TAPES.
