What’s Your Destiny?

Here are some photographs of the finished CD packaging for David Shapireau & West of Next. It is a great album and I am glad I was a part of it. I designed the outside, inside and disc image with a strong western influence to match the name of the band, but don’t let the look fool you. The album has “American and Celtic roots influences with twin guitars and arrangements with a different spin due to Shapireau’s background as a jazz composer and arranger. Humor and history are emphasized in the songs and presentation. Boundaries are pushed while the past is honored.” The band on this recording includes:

  • Drums – Tony Dey of Van Morrison, Mike Bloomfield, Linda Ronstadt.
  • Telecaster – Steve Randall of Richard March, Antoine Barbeaux, Kate Gaffney. Awarded best guitarist in Sacramento according to the 2007 Sacramento News & Review fan voting poll.
  • Bass – Gabe Nelson of Cake (After this recording and a short tour Nelson disembarked to continued his work with Cake. They now have a new bassist, Paul Knutsen).
  • Composer, Stratocaster, mandolin, acoustic guitar – David Shapireau of Taj Mahal, Maria Muldaur, Dan Hicks, Tower of Power, Don Reno, Tony Rice, Byron Berline, Jerry Garcia, David Grisman, Bela Fleck, Norton Buffalo, Steve Miller, Peter Rowan and more.

  41. What you said made a great deal of sense. But, what about this?
    suppose you wrote a catchier title? I mean, I don’t wish to
    tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added something to maybe
    grab a person’s attention? I mean What’s Your Destiny?
    is a little plain. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write post
    headlines to get viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get readers excited
    about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would make your website a little bit more interesting.

  42. I have read several just right stuff here. Certainly price bookmarking
    for revisiting. I wonder how much effort you put to create this type of magnificent informative site.
