The home studio has been very busy leading into the 2020s and beyond. Here's a round-up of recent projects:
The debut single from a brand new band formed during WA's Covid-19 isolation period was released in 2020.
Two follow-up singles were released in 2020 and 2021, with the debut album due for 2023 release.
Tracking for a new song, 'Less Hiding'.
SOUNDBAKER SESSION WORK
Guitar solos tracked at Noise-a-thon for two Soundbaker song projects at the request of producer Rob Agostini.
First EP recorded and produced by Noise-a-thon with a second in the works for 2023 release.
ADELINE & EDWARD
All demos for songs from this original musical written by Rob Garton-Smith have been recorded at Noise-a-thon.
Jacey's debut single 'Change', a powerful statement on domestic violence, was recently released to all digital platforms.
Alli has recorded a fresh version of her song 'Call On Me' from her Fringe-worthy comedy/music show '40 Year-Old Popstar'.
Keep an eye and ear out for the song on Alli's socials.
A project from budding musician and radio host (Tonk'n Along With Tonks on Voice of The Avon 101.3FM), 'Fools of Dereliction' harnesses the spirit and simplicity of 70s punk bands for a political song on climate change. Up and coming WA artist Gracie B provides the lead vocals, with guest guitar from Chris Gibbs.
THE INDIAN PACIFIC
Originally premiered on ABC TV fifty (that's right, fifty!) years ago, 'The Indian Pacific' has been re-recorded by Chris Gibbs under the supervision of the song's original composer, Rob Garton-Smith to commerate half a century since the famous cross-country train made its first journey across the Nullabor.
Having contributed numerous guitar parts to Denny's projects over the years, Chris was very excited to once again record guitars for a new Bollywood-style single and remix.
In conjunction with Troy Nababan at Hammerspace Recordings, Chris has co-produced the debut from new Perth act Winterfold, which happens to feature Chris' nephew Will Gibbs on lead guitar. If 70s-90s era hard rock is your thing, check this one out when it drops in a couple of months.
