A session comprises of a recording of an original song, a cover song and a short interview. An idea that started out as 'let's film some musicians playing in a bookshop'....and that quickly grew into 'let's film some musicians playing in a bookshop'.

Beautiful filmed and recorded video sessions by The Mahogany Sessions team. Mahogany started back in February 2009 as the Mahogany Blog. They had the simple mission to 'deliver great music to your ears and eyes, as often as possible'.
A year later in the Summer of 2010, they saw a great opportunity to expand their mission and started to capture their own video content from the bands that they love and launched The Mahogany sessions. They have filmed over 400 videos and have become one of the most popular independent music platforms in the world.
In 2013 they begun staging live shows in London where teh likes of George Ezra, James Bay, Maverick Sabre, Newton Faulkner, Lucy Rose and many others have performed. This is a platform to discover, share and talk about great music. It's open to everyone of all ages and any background.

Songs FROM The Shed (Somerset)

Songs For The Shed are a great handmade acoustic video session from probably the UK's (and our) favourite musical shed. The shed is a former army billet based in the North Somerset countryside just off junction 20 of the M5, it contains a fascinating collection of curiosities and is the perfect location to take a break from the madness of touring, kick back for a while and watch some intimate lofi acoustic performances. Sessions are recorded as live and in one take giving a feeling of being there.
There is no post production and the sound is controlled by putting the loudest at the back and the quietest at the front. All recorded on a digital compact with one mic a bit like the old days at Sun studios. Analogue for a digital age !
The collections in the shed were initially put together for meetings of a small group of friends with a love of Cheese and Cider during one of our regular meetings in The Royal Oak it was suggested we tried to get some musicians to play at the first meeting. The Cheese and Cider society idea was dropped and Songs From The Shed was born.
