The Loveland Reporter-Herald recently published a book called “The Thousand Year Rain”, which through many amazing photographs and articles, captures the hours and days that immediately followed the flood so well. But after the media attention went away, other stories like ours were ongoing.
At the end of the day, we made it through the worst of times in fairly good shape, even though the flood ended up blowing a hole in the schedule and the budget for completing my new record “Gentilly”, as we've had to re-allocate all of our time and final production funds for studio clean up and remediation.
The good news is that much progress has been made to offset all the damage, and we are now nearing the end of this nearly 2 year long ordeal and the delay it has caused. At this point we can now project completion of all clean up and remediation of the studio in the next few weeks.
This is mostly due to the Long Term Recovery Group of Larimer County Floods, who have recently contributed long needed funds to help finish the clean up. After dealing with the aftermath of this disaster, we can finally think about returning to the completion of the long awaited album.
With our tech, Allen Baca, we are working hard to get the facility back on line as soon as possible, getting all gear up and running again piece by piece, as well as slowly but surely repairing the affected gear from the flood and powering it up to spec. So music is on its way, but not without a last big push.
