This House - Gary Nock

This track is taken from Gary's debut EP 'This House' and was recorded at The Gentlemans Club in London, produced by Richard Causen and Mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Alex Wharton. A very soft, almost jazzy track where dynamics are really the key here!

In Between - The First Seven

This track is a demo version for a new band 'The First Seven'. Recorded by guitarist Pete Murphy, its quite a long, dynamic song with a lot of light and shade throughout, which climaxes with a very straight but effective build up which stretches across that last minute or so of the track.

Stop Pushing Me Away - Eyes Wide Open

Here's a track I recorded at The Square Centre in Nottingham sometime in 2005. The Producer was Tom Smyth. It's a typical soft rock ballad at a slow pace, but it one of those songs that came together quickly and at the time, it was exactly what we were after.
Press play above to listen.

Damn You - Eyes Wide Open

Again, this track was recorded at The Square Centre in Nottingham and produced by Tom Smyth. Damn You is a modern rock type track, very commercial in nature and heavily influenced by US bands such as Matchbox Twenty and Goo Goo Dolls.

Four Weeks - Blackballoon

Another track from Blackballoon, but this time I recorded and produced this track myself. I laid down the drum track at first, called the rest of the band in to complete the song. I recorded it at my mini studio in Birmingham using Pro Tools.

More of an up tempo rock track, it has very dark lyrical content and a cool instrumental break in the middle with a short section in 7/4.

Mr Fun - Blackballoon

Mr Fun is much heavier blues/rock track which incorporates some double-kick work. Again, I recorded and produced this track at my studio in Birmingham. It has a crazy instrumental section in the middle which covers a few different grooves but the track overall is very melodic and commercial sounding.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Company - Blackballoon

Company is a long epic style rock and roll song. Which demonstrates a lot of light and shade and incorporates a cool, almost 'dance style' section in the middle with an interesting short 7/4 to follow. The whole track builds up to huge chorus and outro.
