One Degree of Separation was recorded at Le Chenac Studios in France.
Producer and musician Iain Dunnet twiddled the knobs and pulled the strings in his studio situated near the middle of nowhere in the beautiful Brittany countryside.
Several recording sessions took place throughout 2014 and the album was mixed in early 2015.
Many of the songs were actually written or conceived whilst in location and this is definitely reflected in the feel of the album. A good example is the song Villaine, a love song set on the banks of the River Villaine which swept through the little French village we stayed in.
Local musicians Ron Braganza played pedal steel and Guillaume Pinoit played fiddle while Iain Dunnet also helped us out with his wonderful keyboards skills.
It is a more reflective album than past offerings and in places even a little folk inspired.
Of course the toe tapping Country Rock anthems are still there because those songs are in our DNA. It wouldn't be a Diablos album without them.
