Music

The Darkness and The Light was produced by Mike Gentry (Mike Gentry Music) and David Roof. The record was engineered and mixed by David Roof (with a virtual connection to Mike Gentry) at Rooftop Recording in Grand Blanc, Mi. The album was mastered by Ian Gorman at La Luna Recording and Sound in Kalamazoo, Mi.

 

Joining Mike on this record are some wonderful talents. David Roof played bass (traditional and stand up), mandolin, piano, Hammond organ and percussion. Jimmy Showers jumped in on 6 & 12 string acoustic guitars as well as a sweet sounding electric guitar. Sara Gibson helped create a darkness with her cello. Jeff German joined from Granville, OH on electric guitar for “The Line Between Us.”

 

Vocally, Alison and Tessa Wiercioch of Jackamo provided harmonies that “brighten up your everyday”. Additional harmonies from Dave Toennies of Border Patrol and Downtown Judy Brown. All together, they formed a wonderful, expanded chorus for the opening and closing tracks. 

Videos for "Our Turn to Shine" and "No Way to Live" (created by Brooklyn-based filmmaker Danny Ward) can be found on Gallery
