Tuesday this week saw a full days recording with Paddy Stratton which has taken our project much closer to completion. There were guitars, drums, vocals and much more recorded and we even had a visit from Pete Davies who features in the project on drums.
So, last night The Harvs started recording a new album! We've started before and then come to a grinding halt a few tracks in but I think we may finish this time. Liam played some blinding guitar and hit all the big notes on his vocal tracks. The foundations for 5 songs got put down in quick succession and today I'm starting to flesh out a few of my bits before getting ready for starting to record The Larks new EP tonight!
...followed by short, but nevertheless lovely, performances by Richard Goddard & Donna-marie Harvey!...great work on the mob chorus!...
A short, sharp session with Mr. Geoff Sharkey to start the day off well! Just a few lines of his distinctive gravelly voice and a certain track is so much the richer for it!
Great recording session here with Paddy Stratton on friday when we laid down the basis for the final album track. Spent the entire evening putting vocals, several mandolins and some banjo onto the track. Not long now before we can start unveiling the work we've been doing for the past year and a half! So looking forward to that!
I play live with The Harvs & also play several care homes in the area with my lovely friend Geoff Sharkey. Not only do people living with dementia get a lot out of it, we do too. Massively rewarding.
