Dick Hakes

Dick Hakes, singer-songwriter from North Liberty, paid us a visit and recorded song number 6 for grandchild number 6. What a nice present!

Dick Hakes chose Friday 13th as his lucky day and came in for a morning session.  Here’s what he had to say about his experience here at Euphonic….
Bill’s studio and equipment are first rate and he knows what he is doing, plus
his laid-back, calming attitude helps put a lid on the recording-room jitters when
you are an amateur like me.  I enjoyed the experience and the results exceeded
my expectations.  Thanks Bill!

Dick Hakes is a singer-songwriter, a popular columnist for the Iowa City Press-Citizen, and businessman who has made a special project out of writing songs for his family.  Each of his grandchildren have gotten a song written and recorded for them and he has done some tunes for other family members as well.  His introductory email to me included a song about his wife’s mother that is beautifully written and somebody should record it.   I’m still working on that.

On Friday 13, 2012 Dick stopped by and recorded this one for his newest grandbaby, and it was a very compact, efficient session.  He came prepared to record and and got it done in very quickly.  So we had a bit of time to chat, but mostly we got down to business and here’s the result, which Dick is kind enough to share with everyone.
