Recording underway at Orphan Studios June 2015 Posted on 22-06-2015
The last few weeks have been amazing. Over three days we worked on nine songs. It was so good to see Anja smile and laugh and do what she does best, especially when playing the hammond organ with its valve lesley speaker. Dave Mooney was awesome on both bass and double bass and Sinead Madden was magical on violin, as was Oliver who came and put sax on two songs. We had three different drummers over the three days.

The aim was to have as many musicians recording at the same time as we could. I really wanted Gavin Glass to produce this record... for that reason. We tried to use the click track as little as possible and let the songs move in a human way. We managed to get almost all of the Piano, drums, basses, violin and some guitars like that. Most of what you'll hear on the album will have been recorded that way.

I've still to go and get some good vocal takes on some tracks. We've still to add cello and some backing vocals.

The fundit campaign was a huge success and people have been so generous. I really did get some heartfelt letters of encouragement. This might just be the best yet. We look forward to a launch gig hopefully in November.
New recording project planned for June 2015 Posted on 12-05-2015
We're counting the weeks to the first recording sessions of the new music project. Anja and I have been rehearsing with the very talented bassist Dave Mooney.We've booked the studio and the producer we want. Sinead Madden is also on board. Anja is currently charting the songs. Now we have to try to raise the money for the project... which isn't going to be easy.

Here's the link to the fundit campaign. If you'd like to help... it's a bit like pre-buying a CD early so the project happen.

Thanks for the support coming in so far. It's really touching.
