Faryl Smith Records Inconnu Single

Soprano Faryl Smith (BGT Finalist 2008) has recorded the vocals for the single that will be released in the new year in advance of the main album launch. The single entitled "I Will Be There" is the final track from the album and is essentially a closing anthem with a positive message. We recorded the vocals at the amazing facilities at SAE in Oxford and a music video is being produced to accompany it.

Faryl's clear and delicate voice is perfect for the song and she was a delight to work with. We look forward to introducing her stunning performance to you all in the new year.

Follow our social media pages for news on a release date and we'll be sharing some clips in the future.

John Nettles Records for Inconnu

Today we had the very great pleasure of recording with John Nettles, one of Britain's most recognised and respected acting talents. Most notably known for his roles in Bergerac and Midsomer Murders, John has narrated numerous productions during his career as well establishing himself as one of the great stage actors of his era.

John has taken on the role of the Narrator for Inconnu and the resulting recording is an exceptional performance. Not to mention that he was a pleasure to work with and the session was a lot of fun.

We are extremely grateful to John for his support and we look forward to sharing his performance with our audience.

We recorded at Sound Gallery Studios in Exeter who generously donated the studio time to allow us to record John, and we are very thankful for their support.
