I met Frankie just over a year ago. Having heard about her previous band I was eager to work with her. Just before Xmas I was delighted to be emailed a few demos and we got to work right away.
(Cry For Me) John has a fantastic groove and amazing arrangement. Frankie is a multi instrumentalist and was able to provide all the Piano, Guitar and Saxophone parts. Things got a little crazy in the percussion stage when we decided to add the sounds of a radiator and tape measure… Listen out for those.
For tracking nearly everything was recorded through a Warm Audio Tone Beast Mic Pre running a little hot. This definitely set the tone for the record and didn’t require too much processing in the mix.
I look forward to working on more songs by Dilettante! Find the tune on Soundcloud.
