Studio Sessions Week 2015 – Great opportunity for musicians!

Studio Sessions Week - Sandstorm Records / OYFE Productions Free Audio & Visual Production

Last year, in partnership with Lee Golledge from Sandstorm Records we held the very first Studio Sessions Week.

Over a weekend in February we invited five bands and singers to come to our studio to record a music track and a studio session demo video. Then during March we released the videos one by one each night for a week, just to share new music, hear new people and to spread the love.

We ended up with a great week of new local music and the videos were widely viewed, watched and enjoyed online.

..so we’re doing it again this year and YOU are invited to take part!

This is the perfect opportunity for bands to get a professionally recorded and highly polished music track and a demo video to share with friends, promoters and other musicians and all for free.

Why not check out the playlist from last year:

So now we are looking for 5 new acts to come and join us in 2015, we want killer bands, all the best latest music from the local area.

OYFE Studio Sessions

OYFE Studio Sessions - Professional recording and videography

We are offering bands, singers and musicians the chance to create a collection of media to use to promote themselves with professionally recorded music tracks and videos.

£349

For the princely sum of £349, bring along your instruments to our Studio in Goudhurst, Kent and have an OYFE Studio Session. Adam Finch (Videographer) and Lee Golledge (Music Producer) will be on hand to provide six hours of recording time where you can record your music tracks and while doing so we will also create a music video or two.

The session is yours, use the time as you wish, shall we make a multi-track showreel or just focus on one perfectly polished studio style music video? Adam and Lee will guide you as how best to get the most out of your session. Once we have recorded and filmed everything Adam and Lee will then get to work producing the music and editing the footage and about a week later you will receive a package of media to start showing off your skills!

What can I do in six hours?

In a typical six hour session with some careful planning you could have:

  • 3-4 perfectly mixed and mastered songs in Mp3 format
  • One stylish, professionally filmed studio style music video
  • 10-15 promotional photographs

Doing this, your video could be like this example we did for The Marlee Duo.

Or if you wanted to work on a showreel we could produce:

  • A set of audio clips in mp3 format (not full songs)
  • 1-2 showreel videos
  • 10-15 promotional photographs

We did this for some clients who have two acts, “The 2Seekers” and “Pop goes Eurovision” and in the six hours recording time we made TWO showreels.

So these are examples of what you could do at your OYFE Studio Session.

Here are the videos:

 

We are flexible, friendly guys and have a great studio and a range of equipment to use to make high quality media for our singers and bands.

The full details about OYFE Studio Sessions and what we provide can be found here.

It’s completely free to get in touch and talk about your project, we are very accommodating and look forward to hearing from you!

Music Video – Tres Camaradas – ‘Moon’

Tres Camaradas - new music video

Tres Camaradas, a four-piece rock band from Sittingbourne, Kent approached OYFE Productions to produce a music video for their new single.

The new single is called Moon and is commercially available in June 2013.

The song is about losing someone who means a lot to you when you are very young and the effect this can have on a person, and in this case, leads them to find solace by talking to the moon.

Check it out:

Tres Camaradas is made up of Dan Johnson (guitar and vocals), Jack Gledhill (lead guitar), Matt Sanders (bass) and Connor Downs (drums). An explosive mix as this video will show!

The team at OYFE very much enjoyed working with the band on the shoot and hope to work together again soon.

We wish Tres Camaradas all the best for the future and we hope the fans enjoy the video.
