Niall and Dean
We made a start on the Brass section work for The Album. Thanks to Session Horns, Niall and I were able to get a 4-piece together pretty quickly.
Today Niall and I started work on the “Pre-mixing” – tidying up multiple takes, removing noisy “clunks”, adjusting arrangements, and generally prepping for vox and mixing.

This weekend Dan has been burning through the Bass tracks with Niall. First 6 done. Dean went along too to provide another set of ears. Next up – getting the guitar tracks down.
The Dees met up in Kings Cross in London for a planning session for the new album. Many plans were made.
The tunes are sounding good, and spirits are high.
David Walter also joined the session. Great stuff.
