Born and Raised
Born and Raised is the fifth studio album by American musician John Mayer that was released on May 22, 2012. On this album, the singer, songwriter, and guitarist works with Grammy Award-winning co-producer Don Was and a small, tight ensemble that features Chuck Leavell (the Rolling Stones, the Allman Brothers Band, Eric Clapton) on keyboards, while Chris Botti, Sara Watkins, Jim Keltner and Greg Leisz make guest appearances.
It's one of Mayer's most diverse and exploratory albums yet, trying on a variety of different styles to accompany a set of particularly reflective and soul-searching tunes, and marks yet another change in Mayer's musical style, incorporating musical elements of folk and Americana that take influences from Bob Dylan, Neil Young, David Crosby and Graham Nash.
Electric Lady Welcomes Neve 8078 to Studio A
Electric Lady’s classic Neve 8078 was lovingly and painstakingly restored to like-new condition by Vintage King Audio. Newly installed, ours has a long history of its own, having recorded - Bob Dylan’s Love & Theft, Steely Dan’s Two Against Nature, and film scores like The Aviator and No Country for Old Men. The 8078 was the last of the 80 Series hand-wired mixing consoles and is considered the best sounding tracking console ever produced - now ready for new life at the center of Electric Lady Studios.
