Black Wolf Blues' EP recording sessions so far and our crowdfunding campaign
Thu 24 Aug 2023
It's that time of the week again, and today's blog is about our journey so far in recording our upcoming EP as well as our crowdfunding campaign.
In case you hadn't heard, we are currently recording our second studio release: a brand new EP, with the first single to be released within the next few months.
Our first studio album was an absolute success, with results and feedback from the public much better than expected, and if you haven't already don't forget to check it out on all digital platforms: Black Wolf Blues.
And now a couple of years later, a lot of hard work and preparation has been put into this EP, with some of the songs having been in the works for years, now finally ready to be released.
Just to clarify for those who are not too used to the nomenclature, the only difference between an EP and an album is the number of songs, with EPs usually having up to 5/6 songs, with anything more than that being an album.
Our EP will consist of 5 songs in total, but they will be released in singles, with the first one set to be released in a few months. From there we will be releasing a new single every month, and with the final one our EP will be officially and fully released.
Recording technology has evolved immensely in the last two decades, giving many independent artists the opportunities that once only big studios and labels could offer.
The music industry has also changed, allowing for artists to distribute their music directly to all digital platforms accessible to anyone around the world, as well as interact directly with their fanbase online and on social media.
And in case you didn't know, our guitarist Jake is also a certified music producer, fresh out of one of the best music universities in London, he will be in charge of the recording and production of our EP.
Taking all of this combined with the amazing creative output we have been getting from our new line up, and all the beautiful material that has been coming out of it, means that this EP is only the second of many releases yet to come.
We started out with the drums recording sessions.
We are using state-of-the-art software for the recording of the drums, and the results will really amaze you.
Cam definitely has a lot of hard rock in his influences, and you can hear that on his playing and you'll definitely be able to hear that on the EP.
We have also recorded Jake's acoustic guitars.
We have also done a few bass recording sessions.
We have also done all of Rafael's guitars electric and acoustic as well as most of the vocals.
Most of these recording sessions were done at Pirate Studios Greenwich and some of them at Pirate Studios Camden.
One thing that has really amazed me personally and that became one of the funnest parts of the whole thing was the writing and recording process.
The writing and recording process we established in this new line up is better than ever! And on top of it all, the dynamic we established between us as band members during the writing process and during the planning of this recording project as a whole is something that finished closing the bonds between us as a band.
We are really excited and working on this project every single day, it will really blow your minds.
You will naturally also get to see the artwork of the EP - which will be awesome - from the very first single, as well as the name of the EP.
As an independent band we need all the support we can get, so we are running a crowdfunding campaign to help us fund the recording of our EP and make it as awesome as possible for you!
If you'd like to contribute with any amount just head on over to our website or Linktree and you will find the link to the crowdfunding there.
