The True Grits complete the first day of recording

On Saturday, August 14th, the True Grits began recording tracks for their new album, "Buzz of Bees".  Sam Hess, Brian Shoemaker, and Stephen Evans completed the tracking for drums, bass, and about half of the rhythm guitar parts.  We were guided by the extraordinary engineer, Julian Dreyer.  Everything went really well!
