This post comes at the end of 7.5 days of hard work, laughs, and great sounding tracks that will make up part of the debut LP for Victoria/Vancouver based band, Bridal Party. It felt good to be back in a studio this week and especially to be working with pop-style group after a year of almost entirely jazz and classical recordings.
I’d been to Infinitistudios once before with my recording class back when I was in university. It was fun to return not just as an observing student, but as the session engineer on a project. We had some great toys to play with too, including some great vintage mics and one of my new favourite discoveries, the Shadow Hills Equinox, which became a quick favourite as a vocal preamp for its depth and clarity.
Bridal Party recently finished up their first cross Canada tour and is already gearing up for their fall shows in Victoria, Vancouver, and Nanaimo. Their songs are catchy and energetic, musically interesting, and totally original– I can’t wait to hear the finished album. It already sounds incredible.
