A variety of thoughts from EQ Studios very own John Hamilton.
Tim Fraser, Louise Setara and BBCs The Voice
I can’t believe we’re already reaching the end of October and I’m glad to say it’s been another very busy week here at EQ Studios.
So earlier in the week I had jazz musicians Brian Dee and Tony Hiller in again finalising their songs. They’re sounding great – even though I’m present (and of course engineering) every stage of the recording and mastering process, it’s always nice to see how a song is developing, and this promises to be good!
Tomorrow I’m really excited to be recording some songs by the very talented songwriter Tim Fraser. Singer Louise Setara is doing the vocal honors, and she really is fantastic. If you haven’t heard her, Google her – a wonderful voice and talent. To be working with such high caliber musicians is just brilliant.
This weekend I’m also laying down the vocals of one of my own songs called 'Little Me' with June Caravel. Go check out her 'London Song' on YouTube – it’s so good! She's actually French, you know!
Two very nice people, Patrick Ryan and Julie Yammanee were also in this week completing one of their own songs called 'Last Chance Christmas'. They have been fun to work with.
Finally, this goes out to all singers out there - the BBC is doing a vocal talent competition called ‘The Voice’ (http://www.bbc.co.uk/thevoiceuk/). I know, I know, there are so many of these talent shows around but I really like the look of this as it promises to concentrate on talent as opposed to the soap-drama of X Factor. The last date of entry is midnight on the 24th Oct - so don't hang about!
