Interview with Tommy Cangemi
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Edie Carey's CD "Call Me Home" I produced, engineered, recorded, played several instruments on and co-wrote a few songs on it. I'm proud of it because, I pulled Sean Pelton (SNL) on the drums that we tracked over at Unique Studios in NYC, put them on my drive and moved my rig into a house on the coast of Maine that we stayed in for two months to record the CD. I asked T-Bone Wolk (Hall & Oats) to drive up and lay down some bass and more. Edie is the ultimate Singer Songwriter that LIVES THE MUSIC LIFE of writing, performing live everywhere and always touring. Her truth is all throughout her music and it was an honor to work with her.
