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! Super great to get my awesome Alembic recorded too! Maybe it’ll make history, who knows?!
I had a great time session-ing for Bella McKendree. We played at The Islington and it was a really intimate show and vibe! Stay tuned for more gigs and her album! She’s putting the finishing touches on that and hopefully it’ll be ready and out soon!
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!
For those who are around Soho tomorrow evening, Bella McKendree is playing an intimate gig —> Bella McKendree & Band at L’Escargot! I’m on bass and we have a surprise tunes! It’s free entry too! Check the vent for a drink promo deal.
I finally have some pictures from Gorjys Secrets Music Festival too!! They are super! That bass just looks so flipping mental. The shirt is cool too! Since this gig, I’ve been giggin’ a lot with Bella and I’m set to record her new tunes next month. MEGA EXCITED!
