Showcasing local talent in my area is always a pleasure of mine. We all come from different areas, family, and musical styles. Tim Hatfield has a unique storytelling vision. Please check him out on all download and streaming services.
I'm not sure if any of my followers know this, but before I got into working as a photographer, I was a drummer in the Washington DC area. Back in the fall of 2017, I joined a band called Schreiner. After playing a couple of shows together, we decided on the idea of renting out an AirB&B in West Virginia. This retreat gave us an opportunity to better know each other and collectively throw creative ideas out on the table to record and store for later development.
We spent two full days jamming out and recording new ideas. From those days, six original tunes were brought to life. The other time was used to relax and socialize. The weather was cold and icy for the first part of the retreat. A sheet of ice covered the driveway, so there was no going anywhere anyway. Mornings were spent enjoying coffee, listening to music, and chowing down on some eggs and bacon. Afternoons were the most productive parts of the days, and we entertained ourselves in the evenings with dinner and reflections on our daily accomplishments (with some booze for encouragement).
I'm excited to share the results of our material later in the year. Our album should be fully recorded and available for purchase in the fall of 2018. Enjoy!
