SONGS FROM THE SHED
Team: Jon Earl
Location: Clevedon, North 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.
