Front-Cover-Sinai-297x300You may remember that I posted about my brother-in-law’s upcoming album a few weeks ago. Well, today is the official release date. You can purchase it here:

The Sinai Alliance – Though the Darkness Hide Thee

It’s a rocking, eclectic collection of traditional Christian hymns, but done in a style like you’ve never heard before. Even if you’re not down with hymns in general, I think you should give it a shot. It’s good stuff.

Also, I sang lead vocals on track 4, and I mastered the album.

Why am I telling you about this? Well, first of all I want to support my bro-in-law’s music.

However, there’s a bigger point I want to make here.

Six month ago, while I was at Sweetwater, Joel (my brother-in-law) bought an Mbox 2 Mini and Reason 4 from me. He also bought some JBL LSR 2325 monitors.

That’s it.

Six months later, Joel is releasing this album. Six months later.

My point? You don’t need to buy super-fancy equipment to make an album. Joel used the Mbox 2 and all the stock Digi plug-ins along with Reason to create and mix the entire album.

I’m not downplaying the fact that big studios allow for you to make great recordings, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create a great-sounding album from home.

Go buy the album. It’s like $7.
