A recording made at home primarily on my iPhone... who would've thought I'd like it so much I'd be releasing it? Is this the new recording frontier..?
LOW FIDELITY (Songs By Request Volume 1) is about to hit the shelves and I just want to say a big thanks to all who supported this project. It's been a real joy. The original recordings were taken to Yikesville Studios for embellishment and tweaking, with Shane O'Mara adding guitar bits here and there, a simple EQ and a touch of reverb... it's sounding pretty sweet to these ears. Mastered by Mikey Young too.
From Pulp to Glen Campbell, Spiritualized to Nina Simone, Edwyn Collins to Lou Reed, Joni Mitchell to Chad's Tree... LOW FIDELITY is being manufactured as I write. The tour is in place with master guitarist/producer Shane O'Mara so we'll be visiting a town near you real soon.
You can sample three tracks now. Here's what the track listing looks like too... and the list of people who requested tunes.
If you're keen to pre-order your copy just click here... and I'll pop it in the post as soon as they land... promise.
Here's where the launches take place around the country too... so come along if you're free.
Working on where to play in Brisbane... any suggestions most welcome, though I do love The Junk Bar.
