Reord is Joel Blakey's solo writing and recording project.
Reord does not record to computer but instead relies on Joel's engineering history with Tascam, Fostex 4 track cassette machines, Sound on Sound reel to reel machines, and finally Yamaha AW16 16 track recorder.
- "I chose Sage Kim at Lacquer Channel Mastering, in Toronto, because of her extensive scientific background. She approaches music from that angle.. whereas, my decisions come from the heart, for better or worse, so I wanted a solid ballast behind the mastering board."
- "The people.. Ryan White is a talented singer songwriter and music teacher. I asked him to record the drums and he showed up ready and recorded his parts in only a couple of takes.. very quickly; a smart drummer. I love the tight power in his playing.. Lisa Cole, her beautiful, ethereal voice, singing the Gaelic backing vocals I wrote for 'Juniper', truly captures the spirit of a lost friend; and the power of desires that generally pull us away from our relationships."
