  • To celebrate the release out ‘Hospitality for Hope’ we are delighted to share this short video with you about the making of the album. We shot the footage, with the help of Caroline Walker and Redwood Photography during the recording of the album. Film Maker Mick Paulusma has then edited the footage. It shows us in the studio. We also talk about the songwriting process and how we worked with all the musicians. We hope…

  • SECOND ALBUM SESSION…

    February 17, 2013

    BY STEVE Last Sunday I woke up brightly earlier feeling very excited about the session. After breakfast I headed out to my local garage to get some pizzas and other nibbles for the day. It was then on to collect Caroline, who was going to be documenting the session again. Sadly, Rachel had developed a horrible cough during the week and so didn’t feel well enough to come to the studio. We when arrived at…

  • Earlier this week I went round to Rachel’s house to record some covers to post on YouTube and for free downloads. I had seen how successful this had been for a number of acts and also thought it was about time that I recorded some of the covers we sometimes play in our sets. I took round my recording equipment and set up a microphone for each of us and then a line in for my…

  • Vocal recording..

    February 21, 2011

    On Saturday I spent the day at Chris’  Studio doing a long vocal session.  I arrived at 11 on Saturday morning and it was pretty odd seeing the studio in the day light, as most of the other sessions have been in the evenings. We had discussed at length the best way to approach the vocal recording. Should me and Rach sing live and get a live vibe or do it separately. End the end we…

  • Recording the Glockenspiel…

    February 12, 2011

      Last week I went back to the studio to work on my cover of Atlum Schema’s Gunfight at the OK Corral. I recorded more glockenspiel parts and recorded this little video while working it out. This time me and Chris went crazy and had two cups of tea in one session (we are so rock n roll!!). It is all sounding really great. I now have booked the vocal session so that is very…

  • Glockenspiel Master…

    February 2, 2011

    It was another cold and dark evening as I headed to Chris’ studio (sounds like the start to a very exciting story!!) last Monday. I arrived at his studio armed with my glockenspiel as ‘tonight Matthew I was going to be master glock player’! Haha, no really. Anyway, we loaded up the tracks and started working out the glockenspiel parts for The Whole Picture. It took a little while to get it right and a…

  • On Wednesday evening I headed back over to Chris’ Studio. The jobs for the evening were to listen through the cello parts we created in the last session, recording a bass line for Gunfight and recording the extra parts for The Whole Picture. I arrived to find the studio was really quite cold. It is a converted garage, a very posh one but it doesn’t have heating! I kept my big coat on for quite…
