Local Aid – I’ll stand by you – charity music video

During November in 2014 we recorded and produced a charity single and music video, arranged by James Vince for Live in the Living Room and in aid of Depression Alliance.

The Depression Alliance works to bring people together to end the loneliness and isolation of depression. They also campaign to end the stigma of depression and mental health and raise awareness of what it means to live with depression.

Studio Sessions Week – FIRST THREE ACTS CHOSEN!

Studio Sessions Week 2015 - Record Music and Video with OYFE and Sandstorm Records

Wow wow wow!

Thank you to all the acts who have applied to take part in Studio Sessions Week – we have literally been blown away by the quality and talent that is out there producing excellent music!

Unfortunately we can only record and film five of you and we have now selected our top three!

They are (in no particular order)

 

Arcaves

Arcaves sent us a link to a video they had produced for a track called “Killing Time”, the song was so beautifully done and so moving, it made the hair on the back of my neck stand up on end. Immediately, the video was shared with the team and we all felt the same. Hailing from Southend On Sea, the band is made up of singer, Billy Wright, bassist, Stu Dew and Liv Curtis on vocals. They say they “make melodious, quiet storm of dark pop” and we agree!

Check out Killing Time, it’s seriously wonderful:

Cake promises: Cheese cake and lots of chocolate brownies (Liv LOVES baking cakes!)

 

Slam Cartel

We always wanted to get a mega rock band involved in Studio Sessions and Slam Cartel fit the bill perfectly! Consisting of Gary Moffat on lead vocals, Terry Warville on rhythm guitar, Mark Neudeck on Bass, Damian Fawsett on Lead Guitar and Steve Campkin on drums. The band does proper rock and have played at some prestigious venues and worked alongside some big names, Hawkwind, Y&T, Therapy? and others. We are looking forward to having them in our studio and hope they smash out something mega for Studio Sessions Week.

Have a listen on Soundcloud, ‘Handful of Dreams’ being particularly great:

Cake promises: Any cake you damn well like! (But Mandy is particularly good at making fruit cake!).

 

Black Thorn

We all got it instantly when we checked out “Catch me if you can” by Black Thorn, a fantastic folksey, Lumineer-a-like vibe rang out. Black Thorn is a 4 piece Indie Folk Rock band from Derbyshire. Joel Howe plays acoustic guitar, mandolin, percussion and lead vocals, Adam Clarke plays acoustic guitar and does backing vocals, Josie Stafford-Burdett plays Cornet, accordion and backing vocals and Jack Wright plays bass and percussion. The music is terrifically upbeat and detailed, with such amazing instruments being used to great effect. Lee, our Music Producer just sat back and said “LOVE IT”. So we’re very pleased to invite Black Thorn down from Derbyshire to come and record something with us.

Check out their music on Soundcloud and see if you can get through a track with out tapping along.

Cake promises: The cake of your dreams

 

THE NEXT STAGE

Commiserations to all the acts who are not in the top three, if we could have you all in there we would!

The next stage of our selection process is an online vote to find our FOURTH act and finally a random draw to find the FIFTH act.

The online voting stage begins at midnight Friday 9th January and ends at midnight on Wednesday 14th January so get all your band members, fans, friends, groupies and random people you meet on the street to hit the OYFE website and vote for your band. The act with the highest number of votes will win the fourth spot in Studio Sessions Week.

The FIFTH act will be drawn randomly from the rest and we will announce this on Thursday 15th January.

Record a showreel or music video with OYFE Studio Sessions

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.
