Paradise (down The Highway) is a song writtin in my car, during a traffic jam. The words of the first verse and the chorus more or less ‘came to me’. The second verse (yes it has only two verses) took some more time though. I wanted the song as short as possible and still telling a (short) story.
Some time ago I posted a rough version, recorded using my smartphone, on Youtube. I had the idea to do a country-style acoustic song. But the finished product is more like a rock song. The song was recorded and mixed using Ardour (Linux Audio). The production is very straight forward. Used the Digitech Trio, my Stratocaster, some reverb and compression and limiter plugin on the end bus and that’s it. Vocals were recorded using the BM800 condenser mic. A mic I’ve grown to love a lot, since I think it’s very accurate for my voice.
