In folklore the black dog appears as a ominous figure, but it's also a symbol of great loyalty and steadfastness. Someone once told me that Great Danes were bred to stand by chamber doors and keep their owners company. Well, the dog has been at my door and I have written this album for them.
Black Dog was recorded over five days in May of 2017, with engineer Alex Bennett at Sound Recordings in Campbells Creek, VIC. It was recorded analogue to tape - mixed to tape - and mastered to tape.
