Jj: Darkhollow/StudioWithoutWalls

burn live1Myself (Jj Haggar: Dj/Presenter) Paul Townrow (Producer) got together to create an audio/visual ‘live‘ project called ‘Studio Without Walls’

The essence of this project is to record acoustic sessions & Live Gigs and then ‘master‘ them in the studio to facilitate their use for radio broadcast but also to offer the artist the chance to utilise tracks for a EP release or even full concert album. This would be digital (download) or physical (cd/vinyl) We use Pre-Sonus ‘Studio One’ to record the live shows direct from the artists mixing desk working alongside the artist live engineer and then take it back to the production studio to be mastered.

Our engineers have worked with some of the biggest names in music, like Public Enemy, Depeche Mode, David Bowie, Erasure, Coldplay, Elbow, Oasis, Rhianna, Primal Scream, Echo and the Bunnymen, Doves, The Lightning Seeds, Anathema, The Alarm, Big Country and many more. This enables ANY artist to monetise their Live session for very little output but maximum comeback as the tracks can be individually used to promote their product however they should wish! We are working with both emerging and established artists alongside independent and national promoters! The audio can be matched to visual to create a ‘you tube’ session sensation to also promote the artist.

radio-station-micThe Network Sessions!

These are acoustic / electric performances and interview recorded and filmed. They are ‘Gone Elvis’ One Vocal, One Guitar, evoking the ‘Spirit Of 56’ and Sun Studios. Basically we will be at the studio waiting, everything will be set up ready to record, they roll in, I do a brief interview, and the artist plays… Often this takes 30/45 mins, 1 hour tops… if you can strip a song back and perform it like it was written then you are Rock ‘N Roll, if you can’t then don’t darken my door! Produced by Paul and utilised via Jj’s radio show on Juice Radio. They are also offered as syndication to several other Public Broadcasting Services in Wales. Artists have been Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Marika Hackman, Fearless Vampire Killers, Revoker, Jim Lockley, Itch, Radkey, The Virgin Marys, Goldheart Assembly, Beyond The State, Orient Machine, Joe Silva. & The Frames, Diamond Head & Mike Peters (The Alarm) have done ‘Wall’ sessions with Jj. Of course of you want to do a Full Band acoustic / electric session, we can make that happen too xx

In 2015 we also had ‘North Rising’ with both solo acoustic and full electric performances recorded at the former Aerial Studios Bunker (Now ROC2) in Wrexham, North Wales.  The ‘visual’ aspect was an add on to the audio and not necessary if the artist does not want it. But it’s something we hope to develop.
