A Day in The Studio with Shooter Jennings
Watch acclaimed producer Shooter Jennings create magic in the studio with the American Acoustasonic Jazzmaster® leading the charge.
By Mike Duffy
In addition to his extensive list of solo albums and several EPs, Shooter Jennings is known as a highly sought-after producer who has worked with the likes of Brandi Carlile, Tanya Tucker, Duff McKagan and American Aquarium.
In fact, his production work on Carlile’s 2018 record, By the Way, I Forgive You, garnered three Grammy Awards out of its amazing six nominations.
Clearly, Jennings knows what he’s doing in the studio, which is why he’s the perfect candidate for the inaugural episode.
In this kickoff, Jennings holds court at Dave’s Room in North Hollywood, Calif., which has offered its services to the likes of Billy Corgan, KISS, Tool, Alice in Chains and countless other decorated artists.
With Jennings is Ted Kamp on bass, Aubrey Richmond on fiddle, Jamie Douglass on drums and John Schreffler on guitar, accompanied by recording engineer Dave Spreng.
The story follows Jennings starting with a simple chord progression on his Fender American Acoustasonic Jazzmaster®, before he steps behind the boards to pass off guitar duties to Schreffler (who is also playing an American Acoustasonic Jazzmaster®). What follows is an in-depth look at what it takes to turn an idea into a jam session, and then take that jam and shape it into a fully realized song with radio-play potential.
