Now this is what I call a ‘gold medal finish’. My first time at Metropolis Studios was a time I’ll never forget. Two days, 24hrs of tracking bass and various other things for the new The United Kingdom album. Check out the size of this bass too…?! It’s HUGE.

January has been exciting, which is wonderful but surprising. I’ve always assumed January is a rather slow month, but for me, it’s been full of gigs, work and releases.

I recorded on an album last year at RAK Studios London with the special Bella McKendree and she’s just dropped it! Please do check it out and support her! She’s unique and her music will take you places you’ve never been before! It’s a really great listening experience!

It’s amazing to think this is my FIRST album ever too!Β Super great to get my awesome Alembic recorded too! Maybe it’ll make history, who knows?!

Enjoy!

So for the the last two days, I tracked bass on 9 out 10 tracks for Bella McKendree’s new album! 2 DAYS FOR AN ALBUM…that’s some serious work! I laid down some groovy tracks and some pretty nice fills (my opinion) and the whole band sounded spectacular! I can’t wait for it to be finished!

P.s. for recording, if available, definitely use a 5 string bass! Those low B’s, C’s and D’s add so much depth and energy to songs when used sparingly! My 5 got me out of some tricky not stretches too…so that’s always a bonus when recording!

Take a look at my quick insta video of the studio!

There are some big things on the way! Bella McKendree is going to be recording an album and I’ll be laying down the bass. We had a long rehearsal on the weekend just gone and I have to say, this album will be great! She’s got some brand new tunes and we’re going to remaster and change up some old songs too! Can’t wait to show you!
