The story (blog) begins...
Once Upon A Time, in a land far, far away (the North), five young music geeks (let’s call them the Ont’ Sofa team) set off along the yellow brick road (the M1 to London) in their magical chariot (the big red Kassius van- not for the faint of heart!) to embark on two days of music production in the enchanted land of Gibson Studios...
...Wait, wait, wait... scratch that... this is not a fairy tale... this is real Ont’ Sofa life!
Over the last four days we have been down in London (what a city!!) in order to record our fantastic November Gibson Sessions line up of artists. From one take wonders, to artists travelling from all corners of the earth and walks of live, each singer/songwriter brought their own individual spark to the sofa. We cannot put it into words how brilliant it is to have such talented people coming to play for us, and you, ont’ sofa.
The artists were ecstatic to be able to choose from a fantastic range of Gibson guitars to play. (some actually squealed!) Of course it is always lovely to see an artist playing their heart out on their own guitar too. We have beautiful vocals, songs to get your feet bouncing, lyrics to melt your heart, a couple of cajons, bass, drums and most likely anything else you can imagine, all in the production line soon to be at your ears and eyes disposal.
The videos will be going up online over the next couple of weeks, believe us when we say you do not want to miss a single one!
Love from a VERY happy Ont’ Sofa team :)
