The Voice's Brian Fuente Webcasting EP Release Show

"I sat down at the drawing board shortly after my time on 'The Voice' and was trying to figure out where I wanted to go creatively with my first EP as a solo artist," explains Fuente. "I started listening back to some of the music that inspired me to get into music in the first place. I grew up around a lot of R&B as well as 80's pop. I grew up listening to everything from Tears For Fears to Duran Duran; Michael Jackson to obscure pop bands like Cock Robin. When I was listening back to some of those early inspirations, I thought that it would be really cool to write and record something that set me back in a time and place where I discovered my love for music. 1983 is the year I was born."
Brian laid down guitar, bass, keys, percussion and vocals and self-produced all the new songs, except for "Slow Down Steven" which was co-produced and recorded with Chris Grainger (Wilco, Switchfoot, Luna Halo, Kyle Andrews, The Five Knives) at his studio.
The drums were recorded at The Sound Emporium in Nashville while the remainder of the tracking was completed in BRIAN's home studio known as "The Fountain."
The songs were mixed at Blackbird Studios and mastered by Grammy-nominated engineer Andrew Mendelson (The Rolling Stones, The White Stripes, Kings of Leon) at Georgetown Masters Nashville.
