One of our schools had the honor of recording Roger Earl and Bryan Bassett of Foghat last week. (Remember the Guitar Hero song “Slow Ride?” THOSE people) and singer/guitarist Scott Holt, a superb artist in his own right who spent ten years playing with Buddy Guy. Six songs were recorded under the moniker “Earl and The Agitators,” and it was a fantastic learning experience not just to record three outstanding musicians, but also to hear them share their experiences and knowledge of the music business.

Being the in-house producer and recording engineer for Foghat, Bryan oversaw the project. Over the course of the five-day recording sessions, his advice on workflow, studio operations, and working with musicians was really helpful. Roger always maintained a light tone. A brief joke was available along with some excellent drumming. Scott completed it with incredible vocals and guitar playing that was unmatched! What’s best? All of it was engineered by students, including using Pro Tools, putting up microphones, and operating the SSL Console. They’re now mixing the tracks that will be mastered, and their management is talking about selling the record to labels!Scott-Holt-DHI

The opportunity for Roger, Bryan, and Scott to engage in an hour-long Q&A session with DHI students was another highlight. We learned about their beginnings, influences, and some of the tales behind outstanding tunes. Their creativity and ability to turn everything into a learning occasion made it terrific to have them in the studio. made this last project very unique. They even went so far as to arrange a little catered party for the entire class, and everyone participant in the project received a unique memento.


They even went so far as to send a graduation video and write the class good wishes. Here is their message:
