The Ukuladeez

“The Ukuladeez are an all-girl ukulele group from the beautiful island of Guernsey. After tiring of endless hula dancing they decided to form a band, originally to play covers, but figured out pretty quickly that it was much more fun to write their own music. In summer 2014 they released their first album, ‘The Awesome Adventures Of The Girls With The Tiny Guitars’ and in 2015 released their ‘Cosmic Tea Party’ EP. The girls are influenced by lots of different artists including The Magnetic Fields, Jeffrey Lewis, The Be Good Tanyas, Tom Waits and The Wailin’ Jennys”

We had a lot of fun recording Cosmic Tea Party, I wish you could hear some of the out-takes!

Cosmic Tea Party by the Ukuladeez is available here:-

Recorded and mixed at Stretchy Studio Guernsey, mastered at Gizzard Recording, London.

Robert J. Hunter

I’ve worked on 3 sessions with Rob, each with a different approach and feel, the most recent being a stripped down “Live and Raw” session for his ‘Blistering Soul’ EP, Hurricane is a taster track and been very well received with great reviews.
“Rob has grown over the past year or so into a consummate performer, seemingly playing almost non-stop somewhere or other, and this had lead to him becoming the sort of person who, it seems, is incapable of putting on a bad show” – BBC Introducing.
“Hate Too Much” is taken from some earlier recordings, a more produced sound with overdubs etc.
Check out his soundcloud for more material.

theidshade

The Id Shade are a two piece making what could probably be described as dark pop music.

Lots of layers, some great guitar work and lovely harmonies. Best of all https://soundcloud.com/theidshade/the-start-of-here-1 was picked up by a couple of BBC shows and had a few million listeners………………….

The Phantom Cosmonaut

The Phantom Cosmonaut takes a stripped down approach inspired by an idea that has spanned rock ‘n’ roll to country to punk over the last 60 years – “Three chords and some shouting”

A mostly live session (I think there was an overdub sneaked in somewhere) that captures the Cosmonaut’s sound.

He also writes a great blog!

A Day Before Thursday

 Just after I set myself up with a recording setup again after a LONG break, A Day Before Thursday came round and we made these recordings. Helped me loads by making sure it all worked!

Singing and playing in a very traditional style and telling stories of lost love, axes and syphilis they wanted a very natural live sound with no studio tricks, I think we achieved this.
