"Pittman brings something authentic to the table that we’d like to see a little more often nowadays.." -- evigshed.com
Quite possibly his most introspective and timeless album yet, M.P.3: The Power Of Three, Pt.1 comes as the next step after his previous album, Pain, Love & Destiny, which was a full-out explosive rock odyssey.
On the first part of M.P.3: The Power Of Three, the listener finds a fragile and exposed singer-songwriter baring confessional meanderings of his soul with just his impermeable, yet vulnerable voice and acoustic guitar, and his keen ability to fully engage with each listener in an intimate and revealing way.
Pittman guides each listener on a tour of his stripped down heart as he conveys raw human emotions through personal stories of separation, battles, freedom and numbness.
Through its wall of sound production, which may call to mind T-Rex meets Ray LaMontagne meets Alice in Chains, Pittman has this time teamed up with Grammy Award-winning Danish engineer Flemming Rasmussen, a versatile producer best known for engineering and co-producing Metallica’s Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets albums, as well as albums by Cat Stevens, Morbid Angel and Rainbow, complementing Pittman’s equally versatile musical mastery.
Surely an appetizer of what is to come from Pittman and Rasmussen, M.P.3: The Power Of Three, Pt.1, is even more special in that it was recorded in just one day, shedding even more light on its bare bones simplicity and authentic, heartfelt roots.
Engineered, mixed and Co-Produced by Flemming Rasmussen.
Recorded and mixed at Winding Road Recording Studios, Copenhagen Denmark.
Mastered by Chris Gehringer at Sterling Sound, NYC.
