BORNE's new self titled album is finished, mastered and at the CD duplication house being prep'd for release in early September. The album was recorded at Avatar Studio "A" in New York city and James Lugo's Vocal Asylum in Hollywood, CA. The wonderful Andy Ellis mixed the album. The album was mastered by Louie Teran of Marcussen Mastering. Louie has mastered many notable rock/pop CDs including the Dave Mathews Band (The Gorge) and soundtrack releases including the soundtracks for Shrek 2 (score), Cold Mountain (score), Mean Girls, Spiderman 2, and the oscar award winning score for Finding Neverland. Needless to say, the post production of the album was in very good hands. Some tracks from the album have been posted on the music page of brianralston.com under the Pop & Rock section. Feel free to check them out. Brian did all of the horn arrangements for 4 songs on the album (Chelsea, Forgive Me, Useless and Body Talk) and the string orchestrations and arrangements for the song Crazy World. He also performed all of the trumpet and flugelhorn parts on the album. Since Brian spends most of his time composing and not performing, this is a unique opportunity to hear him play his trumpet as well. The quickest way to purchase the album at first will be either through the band's website at www.borne-music.com, or it will be on iTunes and at CDBaby soon, probably later in September. If you are in the Southern California area, you can also purchase the album at one of BORNE's up-coming shows as well. Enjoy!
