“Behind the Recording of ‘Feeling Coky’ with Slim and the Gems”
by ‘Rockin’ Rob Davis

It’s not often that I get the opportunity to get back in the studio to record music. It seems most of the work I get is all live sound. So when the chance does come around, I jump on it. That’s exactly what I did when I had a conversation with my friend Monroe Slim. Slim had just left a band where he played bass to start his own project with him being the main songwriter and frontman. He had mentioned to me about finding someone to record the music from his new project Slim And The Gems. I immediately got excited and proclaimed my interest in doing this project for him.

When he accepted, we immediately found a studio to do the tracking that was closer to them than where my studio was located. We chose Reservoir Studios in Jackson, Ga. Recording this album for Slim was one of the best recording experiences I’ve ever had. These guys came prepared to play. From the songs and performance to the overall attitude and vibe of the band, I knew from the moment I hit record we had something special. From the thunderous precision of drummer (name Here) to the finger-slapping magic of upright bass player Rob Russo to the man himself: guitar-picking, smooth-singing, Skinny Weight Champ of the World Mr. Monroe Slim!!
These dudes came to play and were serious about what they were doing and I think that is obvious with how the final product came out. This is by far the happiest I’ve been with a final product in all the years I’ve been doing this. I hope all of you get a chance to listen to this album and get as much enjoyment of Slim’s songwriting as I did.
