Today marked the end of the first of many recording sessions with ‘Daily Fish’ (working band title) at SoundARC Recording Studios. Working towards a spring 2013 album release, the band put down the rhythm section to the first five tracks, including Reggae ballad ‘Stevo’ (yup – a song about Stevenage). It was a real privilege to see each track develop as we went along, and I look forward to picking up where we left off in the new year.
Oh yes! So much more than just a new lick of paint, Freakyleaf has been rebuilt from the ground up to give me a brand-new shiny soapbox from which to sing from! Incorporating all the latest techy gadgetry and sporting a truly responsive design and retina-friendly graphics, this website is the result of many caffeine-induced late nights – I hope you enjoy using it as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it!
I’m currently working with The MLP on their debut EP at SoundARC Recording Studios. Tracking is going well, and it’s really nice to work with some old faces again. Drums, bass and guitar are pretty much there (save the odd bit of tidying up), as are the majority of the vocals. We’ve still got a couple of backing vocal parts to lay down along with some percussion before we’re ready to mix.
Well it’s been a busy old couple of months! Hot off the press comes a WordPress blog for upcoming author Gill Tembo, featuring a mobile-friendly design and tight social media integration. Of particular note are the subtly animated clouds behind each page title (a nice little touch for the more adept web browsers) – Hopefully this is the start of something big for Gill.
