Life just got a whole lot better. We are excited to announce a subscribers exclusive show:
Live recording of 4 ambient tales (piano, pedal steel guitar, vocals) at The Piano Room at Hackney Road Studios, for 20 people only.
Pedal steel guitar: Steve Honest
Recording: Steve Honest
Date: 10th Feb 2016
Tickets £25 here (equals 35 Eur)
This is chiefly to have a bit of fun and to create a challenge, as well as to raise money towards the manufacturing and promotion of the new Soul Album "The Soul Tapes', the release date of which should be beginning of May (one hopes). We need a lot more, so if you've won the lottery, please consider donating more.
Tickets will be restricted to bandcamp subscribers. Please do not buy more than one ticket if possible, two only if you really need to.
Here is what will happen:
We'll meet in the piano room, part of Hackney Road Studios. It's a unique and beautiful little space, that holds only 20 people max and has a bar (wheyhey). They also sell beautiful art products there by the way. Then we proceed ot the live recording room, and somehow squeeze in.
Four ambient tales will be recorded live in front of the audience. We get to hang out, spend a nice evening, record an additional two songs too, which we are just beginning to write as we speak. Then we go into the studio room where you all get to see the studio where I mixed my new soul album and you get to see us give the songs a quick mixdown. You get to take a CD of what was played and I'll sign the card sleeve for you.
Tickets will be sold only to bandcamp subscribers for the first 3 days, to give everyone a chance to see the announcement.
After that other social media platforms will be included.
A second day might be added but this is not confirmed at this point.
A link to the original recording with the Grid can be found here, alongside the inside story of how the songs came to be.
