Point and Pray

Point and Play is a series of duets or musical intersections. A lot of spectacular guests appear on this recording. The songs are listed in the order in which they were recorded. Most of the recording was done "live", face to face, in one take. The songs were written by Stefan with the guest artist in mind, often the night before the session. The recording was done on big, old fashioned mic's, recorded on two inch tape, and mixed with a minimum of studio "tricks", to capture a spontaneous "back porch" feel and ambiance. 
Guest include, but are not limited to: Steve James, Peter McLaughlin, Tom Ball, Kristina Olsen, and The Molly's.
