Burbank, CA (December 10, 2004)–Legendary Texas troubadour Robert Earl Keen is currently working at Glenwood Place Studios with Grammy Award-winning engineer Ed Cherney putting the finishing touches on what will be his 11th album. Set for an early 2005 release, What I Really Mean features special guests Ray Price (vocals), Danny Barnes (banjo) and is sprinkled with a few other unique touches, including Gospel singers and Mariachi players.
As was the case with REK’s critically acclaimed 2003 Koch Records debut, Farm Fresh Onions, the new project was recorded with his road band, enhancing the listening experience and capturing the excitement of a live performance. Rich Brotherton, who has been REK’s lead guitarist for several years, produced the record, marking his second production effort for REK. Brotherton has worked with Shawn Colvin, Toni Price, Ronnie Lane and Eliza Gilkyson to name a few. Cherney is mixing the record at Glenwood Place Studios.
“Farm Fresh Onions turned out so great that Rich and I immediately decided to make another record,” said Keen. “The first person we called was Ed Cherney. He’s the MVP. We like Ed’s version of our vision.”
