Lovely weekend:) Just spent two days recording/producing some very inspiring music with the super talented Justin Currie. Just a quick post and I will be posting more in depth "stuff" from the weekend's work in a later blog. Just to say that the studio was a hub of exciting activity (many cameras flashing and filming as well as much great recording). Many thanks to Paul Jackson for capturing the spirit of the session on lens.
Justin in one of the nicest individuals I've worked with in a long time...totally without ego and very much filled with creative energy. He has the ability to make the microphones sound (even) more expensive than they already are....!
On Sunday myself and Naomi were joined by Bobby Valentino. Bobby is a rare individual in that he's probably played one of the most famous fiddle riffs in recorded music being a member of The Bluebells and playing on the original recording of "Young at Heart." He's a fine musician who has played with many a great artist ( Bob Dylan, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Bob Geldof, Alabama 3, Shania Twain)
He played some blindingly good music...more on that in a later post.
Justin and Gerry
