Produces ‘The Sheepdogs’

Produces0 Comments

Carney produces The Sheepdogs’ self-titled album being released on Atlantic Records/Warner Music Canada. Singer Currie says:

A lot of making rock’n’roll is about cutting the fat and being a good filter. In the studio, he helped us refine the songs and found the best representation of each one possible. Plus, we wanted to be able to incorporate all different styles and I think our album runs the gamut.

Produces Tennis album

Produces0 Comments

Carney produces the sophomore album of pop group Tennis. The album is titled Young & Old and is recorded in Nashville.

They basically just e-mailed and asked me if I was interested in helping them make an album, and I was. I like working with bands that have that kind of pop aesthetic but are still coming from a different direction. I try not to do that much production work. But for them, it kind of worked out perfectly because they came to Nashville, and we made the album in, like, 10 days in my garage.
