'The Wild Root' inspires the return of Ae3
Back in September of 2018, I got in touch with Danny and Kris about coming into Iron Wax Studios to hang out with the possibility of recording some music. I had no idea of what it would sound like. I didn’t send around songs that I already recorded like I did in the past. In fact, I wasn’t even thinking it would be a new Ae3 album. I just wanted three close friends to hang out and have some fun while writing new music for music’s sake. On the morning of our first two day session, we all met at my favorite pre studio restaurant, Wild Roots Cafe. It had been a few years since the three of us were in one place together and it felt like no time had passed at all.
After catching up over food and smoothies, we made our way to the studio. Within minutes of sitting down at our instruments, we were writing and recording our first song. After that first session on Oct. 25th & 26th, we had three songs in recorded and it was obvious a new Ae3 album was on the way. We then got together every couple of months, meeting at Wild Roots each morning to energize ourselves with food and laughter. Every two day session produced 3 songs each and now we are here talking about ‘The Wild Root’.... An album born from a true love of friendship, musical freedom and artistic expression. ‘The Wild Root’ is one of my favorite creations I have been a part of. I really love this album and all who have been a part of making it. I can’t wait for it’s release so you can hear and feel the amazing time we had making it. It is official, Ae3 is back!!
