This week is Studio Sessions Week!
Back in January this year we asked bands and singers to take part in Studio Sessions Week, an amazing week of new, cool music to showcase musical talent and to show the world what we can do at OYFE Productions and Sandstorm Records. We had a great response to this with over 40 bands applying to take part.
We selected our five and we’ve been hard at work producing their music tracks and studio demo videos and we will be releasing a new track every night this week at 8pm.
The videos will be added to this list when they come out, and you can read about the bands below.
Monday 30th March 2015 – Redhead – Live for today
Redhead are led by Ellis Crewe-Candy and his band from Basingstoke. They have a classic rock groove to their music which we thought was very much akin to Guns N Roses. The band is made up of Ellis Crewe-Candy on vocals, Robbie Wahfoot on lead Guitar, Sean ‘Seamus’ Queenan on Bass and Phillip ‘Pet’ Tetlow on drums. The boys recorded a great new track called ‘Live for today’.
Tuesday 31st March 2015 – Slam Cartel – Hypnotised
Slam Cartel brought their huge band and massive smashing rock sounds to the studio to record a live version of ‘Hypnotised’. The band is led by the charismatic Gary Moffat and with Terence Warville on Guitar, Damian J Fawsett on Lead Guitar, Marc Neudeck on Bass and Steve Campkin on the drums.
Wednesday 1st April 2015 – Foxer – Go to bed
Foxer have an old school bluesy rock vibe to their music and performed a song called ‘Go to bed’ which is wise words for those who sit up all night editing videos. Sam J Cutbush leads the band on Bass and vocals, Chris “Peaceman” Peace on Guitar, Roy Ludford also on Guitar and Synth and Jack Mitchell plays the Drums.
Thursday 2nd April 2015 – Arcaves – Stockholm
Arcaves brought an outstanding performance of one of their new songs called ‘Stockholm’, a mesmerisingly hypnotic piece that is a treat for your ears. Billy Wright and Liv Curtis supply beautiful vocals superbly inter-twined with Dan’s percussion and sounds, this is late night pop (as they call it) at it’s absolute best and this track would not be out of place in a thoughtful Hollywood movie soundtrack. Gorgeous.
Friday 3rd April 2015 – The Reckostacks – You, me in a bucket
We met Alex Beharrell at our recent Local Aid recording with his commanding voice and stage presence. This time he brought his band, The Reckostacks and their eclectic, bluesy folk vibe track called ‘You, me and a bucket’ which was performed with huge enthusiasm which led to a brilliant, inspiring studio session. The band is made up of Alex Beharrell on vocals and acoustic guitar, Chris Rouse on Lead Guitar, Phil Hodge on the biggest bass you have ever seen and Tom Heasman on the Drums – watch him on the fast bits!
