Summer 2015 – #Insession #NewMusic #APickleDownUnder

It’s been a busy spring and summer so far at Grand Chapel Studios. The second series of Infuse: INSESSION at Grand Chapel Studios has been released with a total 20 videos from 10 artists including Tut Tut Child, Natasha North, Tides, Alex Bay, Indi and the Vegas, Tom Dibb, The Ages, The Kingston Inn, Alex Fox and Ben White. The line-up for the next series is looking great already, but you’ll have to wait until October to find out more.

Recording projects recently have included EPs for Mandeville & Tom Dibb, and projects with M a r i n e,  Jazz Morley, Kribbar, Jess Thriston, Abi Murray, Sonic Scream & Harry Phillips… and there are always new toys, best of which is a late 1950s EMT 140 Plate Reverb – and this one has some serious heritage.. A beautiful sound, make sure you ask us about it when you pop in!

Summer is going well, so make sure you keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter.

After the huge success of Theo Jackson’s gig, we’re also hosting a second evening of live music, this time with Tom Dibb who is preparing for his #APickleDownUnder tour.  Tom is planning to drive his 1989  T25 VW Camper Van all the way from here in the UK through Europe and Asia to Melbourne, gigging all of the way and ending in a big show in Oz.  It’s Free Entry to the event, with very limited places, and donations to the artist are welcome.

You can find out more on our Live page here and we will be adding links to more websites soon. It’ll also be the first chance to hear his new EP.. soon to be available from TomDibb.com .

Our doors are open

The Chapel’s doors were opened in mid-April to a variety of talented musicians… and we saw our first weekend of live recordings for The Tommy Blaize Band, Charlie Weaver (of Lonsdale Boys Club), Georgia Thursting and Serena Soya. The videos are currently on the editing table of Crooked House Films, and you can see photos from those sessions on our ‘Recent Projects‘ page.

May and June hold more antics and very interesting projects for Grand Chapel Studios, with more creative film work and recording going on. Watch this space for more news. We hope this first year continues as it has started.
