Back in the Studio!
 
Last Tuesday was a productive day in the studio, I took Jayda and her school friend Stephanie, they both sang beautifully, and were excited by the process of recording. The songs came together nicely. Here’s what happened:

As we had pre-recorded the song, the girls came in to sing the choir and harmony parts in the chorus of the Christmas song. We had a listen and worked out the arrangements together. Then we practiced the parts, and when they were confident and ready they put the headphones on and went into the vocal booth (which is a soundproof box to record in), Jayda is now an old hand at this and really enjoys the process. Stephanie was quite nervous at the start of her vocal session, but after a few takes she settled down and sounded great, and we will definitely use her recordings on the finished album.

The girls then were able to come and listen to what they had recorded, and we had the opportunity to touch up the areas we felt needed improving. I’m looking forward to giving you a sneak preview as soon as we have added in lots more instrumentation and a kids choir. Watch this space…
