09 Dec The many faces of Vienna!
Hello Vienna People! (it’s been awhile – we miss you)
We have had a busy month or two with many melodies, beats and harmonies flooding the studio in a haze of great times and great tunes!
The Mary + The Banks EP is done! Mary stunned us with her vocal talents day after day and the project came together with much ease – we are very proud to have this one under our belt – looking like there will be an EP release at the end of January – stay tunes for details at their Facebook page here –> http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mary-the-Banks/217833611647126
The Big Ol’ bus band and their leader/songwriter Hugh Scott Murray spent a week doing a few bits and pieces of tracking and fully mixing their record with us in October – great fun swing/jazz songs with some brilliant lyrics! Check out if they’re coming to a town near you and get your dance on! www.facebook.com/pages/The-Big-Ol-Bus-Band/118490094834236
Two days ago an EP we’re very very proud of came out on itunes – if you’re a fan of rnb/soul/jazz (actually, even if you’re not!) check out Jess Starreveld’s EP ‘Late Night Drive’ – on itunes here –> https://itunes.apple.com/album/late-night-drive-ep/id582451499?v0=9988&ign-mpt=uo%3D1 It features some amazing musicians, and Jess is an absolute superstar who has a great career ahead of her!
Mary from Mary and the Banks dropped in on sunday to record a SECRET song that you’ll be hearing about early in the new year.
We’ve been working on an EP with Vanessa Heinitz, its got pop, its got indie, its got country – its a smorgasbord of fun times – Zane from Mary and the Banks even dropped in to put some sneaky banjo on a track or two!
Our week sees mixing Vanessa’s EP, mixing Marys secret song, tracking some drums for a solo EP, and assembling various children’s toys without much ease
It Mikes Birthday on thursday – we love you Mr McGlynn!!
We also like giving away things, so its competition time! Any new like on our facebook page (www.facebook.com/viennapeople) between now and December 21 puts the liker in the draw to win A FREE SONG RECORDED AND MIXED at Vienna People, and MASTERED by Gotye’s mastering engineer, Willy Bowden at King Willy Sound (if he has time not being nominated for Grammys)
