Shaker was recorded during 1999 with the able assistance of Bill Stunt from the CBC. Most of the original tracks were recorded at the Sound of One Hand Studios in Ottawa. The CD was mixed at the Tragically Hip’s Bathouse Studios by Ken Freisen and the members of Cheza. On this album we tried to go for a live sound — several of the songs were recorded on the spot with few overdubs. This album features songwriting from four of Cheza’s members and arrangements by the band.
