Joey Cape of Lagwagon has formed One Week records. The label is centered around the idea of artists recording ten-track albums in seven days at Cape's recording studio. So far, the label has released albums by Brian Wahlstrom and Chris Cresswell. An album by Jo Bergeron is coming soon.
A One Week Record is ten songs that are recorded in seven days. The records are produced in my home studio. The artist is invited to my house to eat, drink, sleep and record music for one week. Given the limited schedule, there is no time to overproduce. The idea stems from my long-time love affair with demos. I am often disappointed with the big production that follows. I donât want to hear what the studio sounds like, I want to hear what the artist sounds like. The goal here at One Week Records is to produce high quality recordings that are an honest representation of an artistâ creativity.
