The trip to my home town Courtenay was fun. I ended up renting a hotel room at the Anco, instead of the Travelers lodge. It was cheaper and it seemed fine so it became the final choice.
Me and Tobes were there to setup around 2pm. The room was a little small but it had everything we needed to record.
The first member to show up was Joss; around 6pm. Once he got there, we threw a few beats on from Tobes and found one we liked. The concept we decided for the first track was summer time on the islands. I had a lot to write about and really enjoyed bringing back some old memories of my past. We ended up working on this summer track most the night until later, when we started on a different song called “The New View.”
Later on Beyond called and I went to pick him up while Tobes and Joss finished the track off. Once I got back to the hotel we had a call from the owner who told us that all guests must be out by 11:00pm. We let Beyond finish things off with a dope verse on the summer song before we left.
All together it was a productive night and I was glad everyone got to meet each other. OFP is supposed to be a family and I do my best to make sure people support each other. I ended up staying the night there at the hotel, then I packed up the gear and left the next day.
