Back in Match this year, I was in the studio again with the brilliant Gecko band to record a few songs for their then upcoming EP. Only one song from that day called Feeling My Way made it to the EP, it joined another song we recorded nearly two years earlier called Camden.
I’ve had the pleasure of recording a string quartet recently called Niche London Quartet. Two violins, one viola and a cello. A lovely repertoire of both classical and contemporary pieces, all part of this group’s preparation for the summer season of weddings, birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs, corporate events and fancy dinners.
For the past year or so, whenever schedule permitted, I’ve been working with an very talented bunch of guys who go by the name of Gecko. Four young guys with more positive energy that I could ever dream of having have been turning out one song after another to what is fast becoming a gorgeous gem of an album, but in the meantime – a little preview.
I’ve spent a weekend in the studio in uncharted territories recording reggae music with an amazing band called General Roots. I have to admit, I’ve never done reggae before in my life! Not to mention a cross between reggae and dub! I was getting a bit nervous as the weekend approached but as soon as the musicians started playing, I’ll be alright. These guys are seriously good, and I don’t think I have the right words to do their energy and musicianship justice. You’ll just have to attend one of their gigs or wait for the EP release.
