"Last The Year" is a self written and self recorded album that was entirely produced in Gelardin's Production Studio. It began with a project for Recording Arts I that ended up continuing through the summer and becoming an acoustic/folk album. This is just the first of many recording projects that Mary Ellen hopes to pursue in her future at Georgetown.
"I started this project really as just a way to express myself. I have been writing songs for a long time, have been involved with the student music scene here for a while, but had never taken the time to fully sit down and try to express the exact type of music that I felt was relevant to my life at that point. After taking Recording Arts I, I felt fully equipped to venture out and record my own album. Of course, there were quite a few hiccups along the way and I had to teach myself quite a bit more about ProTools and recording than I thought I would need to know, but overall it was a learning experience and I hope to build off of it in the future. I am really happy with how everything turned out and plan on releasing a full length album by the time I graduate in two years."
