How the location affected his recording process:
It was cold—probably thirty degrees—so things were done in a timely manner. There's something magical about performing in a space like that, though. Once I was performing the song, I'd get lost in the surroundings and forget about the cold. I started to play off the reflections built into the space and let the setting become part of the song.
This spot had some good reverb without getting overbearing, which made my job as a mixing engineer easier in the end. I didn't have to add a lot to the track.
