Viola and Cello….

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

Yesterday we were asked to add some single viola and cello parts to a track by the acoustic band ‘Shy June’ (Stuart Denney and Gareth Edler) who are currently recording new material after releasing ‘Drive’ earlier this year.

Although the viola is a beautiful instrument, it is not always the obvious first choice (people more commonly think of hiring a session violinist), so it was a real pleasure to be able to bring the rich, mellow qualities of a viola to this track (and also the soulful sound of Julia’s cello).

We wish Stuart and Gareth every success with their forthcoming release!
