New Album Prep, Part 3: Prep Another Day



Wait, Vox and the Hound is done prepping? Full-blown recording time? AND NO ONE TOLD ME? What gives?!?

Not quite, doggies, not quite. Rory here with a long-overdue update. While, yes, we were in the studio very recently recording Song #2, our new approach means we’ll be tackling one song at a time, writing and demoing along the way. 

The two songs we’ve already “for reals” recorded are interesting, because parts (mostly mine) have been fluid and constantly changing, sometimes dramatically. All of that is to say that nothing’s set in stone with this process, and the more open one is to change, the more that person can be rewarded. Or something. I think I read that in a fortune cookie.

Anyhoot, we will continue to write and record over at the Music Shed with the wonderful and talented and wonderfully talented Ben Lorio. We are looking forward to the process of making our next album EP (let’s just call it) record, even if it takes a while.*

*It may well take a while, so, in keeping with the “dog” motif from my opening line, here is a picture of cute puppies to hold you over for now. Enjoy.


'Till next time, hounds!

More barking than singing these days,

Rory, V&tH

However, the group’s undeniable chemistry grew into a full-fledged band that, nearly four years later, still retains its original members in DeJesus on guitar and vocals, Andrew Jarman on bass and vocals, Daniel “D-Ray” Ray on keys, vocals, and trombone, Rory Callais on guitar, and Eric Rogers on drums. The band quickly recorded a batch of DeJesus’s songs for its 2011 EP Hermosa before collaborating to produce their eclectic and dense debut album Courage. Vox and the Hound has gone on to win Gambit Weekly’s Big Easy Music Awards “Best Emerging Artist 2012,” sell out House of Blues’ Parish Room for the Courage release show, and mount a Kickstarter campaign to release Courage on vinyl that doubled its initial goal. Not one to rest on its laurels, Vox and the Hound is currently writing new material in preparation of its next release while continuing to touch on “a panoply of styles, from spare, dreamy soundscapes to vivacious prog-pop and spooky Americana (Allison Fensterstock,
