In this week’s edition of Detroit’s Metro Times, our own David Feeny is named one of 70 locals who rock Detroit. Here’s what it says:
PRODUCER, MUSICIAN, STUDIO & LABEL HEAD
As the Detroit area’s go-to pedal-steel guitar player and a member of local alt-country heroes Blanche, Feeny is part of the area’s musical elite. But what really puts him on this list is his role as owner of Tempermill Studios, which is responsible for a long run of terrific recordings, as well as his main manning the launch of Gangplank Records and new indie recordings by the aforementioned Blanche, American Mars, the Friendly Foes and Sunshine Doray. And his co-production credit (with Jack White) on Loretta Lynn’s last Grammy-winning LP brought him national prominence.
Pretty cool. AM.com got in touch with Feeny today at the Tempermill and asked him what he thought of being named. “I’m sure it’s my early work with such notable supergroups as Hippodrome, Hysteric Narcotics, and The Almighty Lumberjacks of Death that has garnered me this prestigious accolade. Seriously though, it’s nice to know that in a small way somebody has noticed and that I’ve been able to exist making music.”
