Jobless but not unoccupied. However, my dwindling cash situation is not so great. I have a fear of topping up my oyster card these days! On the plus side though I have been enjoying some studio time with my friend and super talented Producer, Ian Barter. Three days, two films, two guest vocalists, two bags of roast chicken sensations, a few naps, lots of trips to the station, one dominating flute line, three cats and one dead shrew later I emerged from Mr Barter’s studio with five new songs!!
No that’s not me in case you were thinking I’ve been radically altered into a pretty lady. It is the delightful Sophie Jamieson laying down some sweet vocals for my new song, Fields of England. It really is a pleasure to hear someone sing the words you wrote to the music you thought up and for it to sound lovely. That may sound arrogant but forgive me this once. Thank you Sophie for coming down and singing!
Liz Lawrence also took time out from her hectic touring schedule to pop in and record our song, Sons and Daughters. I’ve been waiting a long time to record that song up and it really turned out well. I’ll get finished versions of the tracks up on band camp soon. Here’s a picture of Ian Barter spreading some sweet vibes with the flute in the meanwhile.
You’ve got to go barefoot when coaxing sweet sweet music out of the silver pipe!
Which leads us finally to the very cool news of Extension Music signing me to their roster!! Extension will be pitching my songs for syncs. Which hopefully means that you will be hearing my dulcet tones whilst two people make out on a hit TV show sometime in the near future!! Keep your fingers crossed.
