Back In The Studio

It's Saturday afternoon, I'm gettingover a lousy cold. My eyes are heavy, my thoat hurts and I can't stop coughing. Luckily I'm not the one who has to sing today.

Win arrived for his backing vocal session and just had time to discuss hairstyles with Pete in the studio before we started.

Then it was into the booth for Win
and what an amazing job he did on two of the songs. The Friend You Need and The River Is Wide.
End of the session and engineer Pete and I listen to the rough mix of  the chorus from The Friend You Need

The Backing Singers Are Back

Those busy backing vocalists have been missing from my studio for some time now. With just five more tracks for backing vocals to be laid down on and the mixing will begin.

Here's Josie. I trapped her in the vocal booth one night and the results of her backing harmonies were magical. Even better than they would have been if she'd come here of her own accord. But she was tired and hungry and knew that the only way out of that booth was to sing for her life!

But seriously though. Thanks Josie for your hard work. Win is in on Saturday and the songs are taking shape.

I'll add some clips of rough mixes as we go along.
