Possible the most fun bit of recording I have ever done… I hope your ears can tell.
Last month I spent another day recording with the wonderful Dean Firth but this time I brought some friends along.
My favourite take of the day was this cover of ‘Golden Brown’ by The Stranglers which I have uploaded for your listening pleasure here – http://www.robingrey.com/mp3/goldenbrown.mp3
I am hoping to do much more live recording work like this. Capturing a live performance with an ensemble is such a different experience to over dubbing instruments in my little studio!

Iain Macleod – Banjo and Backing Vocals
Barbara Bartz – Violin
Dean Firth – Electric Bass
I have just spent a lovely day with Dean Firth recording a new tune called ‘Make Believe (Roses From Africa)’.
Dean did the final mix of my album back in January. He is an amazing musician, engineer and producer who I am very happy to be working with again.
Dean played classical guitar on the track as well as pointing microphones and looking after EQ, mixing and other dark sound engineering arts which baffle me…
