Battle Cry LIVE has hit the #1 spot on the US Billboard Music DVD Chart, as well as #1’s in Sweden, Finland and Canada. So proud to have mixed this record, produced by the always amazing Tom Allom. I’d love to say that it earned those top spots by virtue of the wonderful mixing 🙂 but actually it’s the band’s incredible energy and performance that makes it such a great product – well worth checking out.
Walking On Cars single, Speeding Cars is BBC Radio 1’s Track Of The Day today, being played on every daytime show. This follows an A-Listing on Radio 2, approaching 2 million views and nearly 20,000 likes on YouTube, and more than 300,000 searches on Shazam. Of course the numbers don’t really mean much once you shut the laptop, but they do represent some thoroughly well-deserved recognition for an awesome and extremely hard-working band. So proud to have worked with them on this record.
Last year, I was fortunate enough to do some engineering on a few tracks for Birdy’s new album Beautiful Lies. She is one of those artists who surprises you every day in the studio – you just don’t think she could sing any more beautifully, or make it look any easier, and then she does. Again. She’s gone in at No4 in the Official UK Album Chart, is the Shazam No1 today, and debut’d at the top of the iTunes album chart in a number of countries. It’s hugely impressive to see how well she’s doing, but not a surprise having seen her work in person. Definitely one to check out.
Just in case anyone was desperate to know more about what I think, here I am talking…
Following their run at No 1 in Ireland, Walking On Cars have entered the Top 10 in the iTunes UK Album Chart. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch.
I have spent the last few months mixing this – It’s a huge honour to be involved with a band who have really defined their genre from the very beginning. The burden of responsibility has weighed heavily, and I believe we’ve presented their awesome energy in the appropriate way. Watching the show gives a sense of how they’ve remained at the top of the game for so long, with a fanbase spanning generations. It’s out at the end of March. Metal heads, check it out!
Walking On Cars have a number 1 album in Ireland with Everything This Way. It’s thoroughly well-deserved, and a source of great pride for them, and of course for everyone who has been involved in whatever way. Awesome.
Last year I engineered some tracks for the new Foxes record, for production duo My Riot (Tim Bran and Roy Kerr). It was an incredible experience to work with Lou and the band. They’re beyond talented and it’s great to be able to link to the finished record. My favourite track is Scar – check it out
I’ve banged on a lot about this. At this point, suffice to say that it’s been a career highlight to engineer this for the band, and producers Tim Bran and Roy Kerr. Regardless of my involvement it is and will remain one of my favourite records. Have a listen below:
