Watching The Stars MP3 Download
Four original songs, recorded live in the studio in the classic crooner style, this is real swing with a real band!
You can't mistake the Sinatra style in this music, I'm not a Frank Sinatra look alike or sound a-like I just love the music. I started by performing a show to old blue eyes and young blue eyes Michael Buble` to my surprise the audience were loving what I was doing at first I thought "they must be mistaking me for someone else". I gradually progressed from singing with backing tracks, to singing with the top swing band in Glasgow (that's in the UK in a tiny wee country called Scotland), this was great but I wanted to record some songs, the first song was "Now I'm watching the Stars" I recorded this in my own studio with real horns and a sequenced rhythm track, it was good but it just didn't sound right, there was only one answer! form my own band get them rehearsed and record it live the way the great crooners did. The whole project has taken a year, the band is a ten piece, the line up is; drums, double bass, guitar, piano, the horns are two trumpets one trombone, the sax's are alto, tenor, and baritone. The four songs were recorded at Castlesound Studio's in Edinburgh the producer was Stuart Hamilton and the arrangements by Peter Tappern both these guy's are top notch with credits from the BBC and the well known TV show strictly Come Dancing.
I hope you like the feel of these tracks as much as I do, we recorded the songs in a 3 hour session on Saturday 5th January 2013 and did the mix in the afternoon job done. We have about another 20 songs in the pipe line waiting to be brought to life but that is up to you isn't it?
