Recording News

Recording

Back in December Reuben Wills and myself went back to the site of the Infinity Broke recordings and started work on my next solo album. Just myself on acoustic guitar and vocals and Reuben on double bass. Chris McGirr who kindly lent us his big beautiful shed in Mount Rankin did so again, he even pressed the record button for us and cooked us breakfast one day too. He’s one of the best.

I bought an old 16 track half inch recorder, some tape and borrowed some microphones and so forth from Chris Colquhoun. This will be my first completely self recorded album, I’ll keep you posted on its progress.

The Tall Grass album keeps inching away as well – Peter and I have played most of the instruments ourselves on this. My brother thinks it has an ’80’s Australiana feel, he means that it in a good way! We feel we’ve written some great songs together. It’s been recorded by Richard Andrew in Melbourne with Peter adding some of our overdubs up here. Richard also plays some drums and bass on it and the lovely Laura Jean has been sweetening things up a bit with her vocals. Again, we’ll keep you posted.

Goodbye Amanda/Bookings

I don’t really know what heading to write here. R.I.P always feels like such a sad cliche but in terrible news my long term booking agent and chief champion Amanda Case has passed away after succumbing to an extremely aggressive form of cancer. I have posted a detailed tribute to her here https://www.facebook.com/JamieHutchingsMusic/posts/10153860053263094
Amanda was a true godsend to me, she was so encouraging and worked so hard, all of the while living in far off America. She will be sadly missed by all those who knew who and worked with her.
For those interested in getting in contact with me about bookings for any of my projects from hereon just contact me here direct.
