Producer Chad Staehly On Horseshoes and Hand Grenades: “Miles In Blue” Album
Producer Chad Staehly reflects on working with Horseshoes and Hand Grenades to create their latest album, “Miles In Blue”
“Horseshoes and Hand Grenades have made their finest album to date, their growth as songsmiths has been an amazing journey to watch. I think anyone who is a fan of music, no matter what genre they listen to, will find something they like on this new album.”
~Chad Staehly, Producer (Great American Taxi, Hard Working Americans, High Hawks)
Chad Staehly is well known for his work as a producer and keyboardist. He has been a part of Hard Working Americans, Great American Taxi, and recently, The High Hawks, with Adam Greuel of Horseshoes and Hand Grenades.
This musical relationship led to Staehly producing the newest Horseshoes and Hand Grenades project, Miles In Blue.
We asked Chad Staehly about his experience working with Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, and, well, we’ll just let Chad take it from here…
Also from Chad Staehly:
“I’ve been a fan of the band for years and was honored to be asked to join them in their album making sacrament.
I’ll admit I was a bit leery when they told me they had eighteen songs that they wanted to record in a matter of five days. Once we dug in and got started though it was apparent that it was going to be really easy to do. The band had been touring hard and were a well-greased machine.
My job was really to help set the mood and vibe along the way, tell a few jokes or say something really ridiculous when things got heavy, and then throw in an idea or two here and there when they got stuck.
The music really played the band and everyone served the songs in the highest way possible.
Amazing things can unfold when a band is making a record and there are trust and good vibes in the room. We had that in aces, and everyone did their best.
That’s all you can hope for when you make an album, great songs, good vibes, and a group of people who are all focused on the same thing. I hope we get to do it again sometime!”
