About Me

unTOBYDON (1)

With a long career in the music and recording business, I have a few tales from the trenches. I’m also a longtime proponent of overdubbing in the recording field and I have quite a few overdub stories to tell. For those of you who may not be familiar with the term “overdub,” it is the process in which one records over his/her voice or instrument once or twice or more, or over two hundred like I have done with America The Beautiful. This time I’m going to document everything, videotape, have witnesses and maybe even have the record go into… Well, I can’t mention a name just yet, but I think you know who I mean.

Presently, I’m going for another world record of overdubbing my voice on Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus, singing all the voices: soprano, alto, tenor and bass. When I reach my goal of 175 to 200 voices, I’ve been invited to play it back a cappella in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in New York, and record and use the fabulous echo to add to the final mix. Right now I’m up to 126 voices and here’s a short demo with a little rhythm – HALLELUJAH MULTIPHOTO3

And later on, I’ll be adding some drums, bass, guitars, piano, organ and maybe even some fiddle and steel, with some world class studio players.

One thought on “About Me”

  1. Mr. Don Meehan –

    My name is Casey Meehan and I group up PA, but my father Don Meehan Jr. grew up in Secaucus and was moved to Randolph NJ after being kicked out of catholic school. I am writing you because I lived in Saint Augustine for 12 years and knew your late son John. I am friends with Reggie and know Tommy Dolan. We are one of the same, what a great soul and I miss him dearly. Our paths crossed for a reason becuase for the life of me the coincidence of our likeness in names and my father is Don Meehan Jr lends me to the fact that our family tree must be intertwined, My grandfather Don Meehan did not know his father. If you could be so kind to provide me with some of your lineage I would like to track it back. I had an Great Uncle Big John Meehan he was a country singer if that helps. Love your story.
