V A L V E album update

We're getting there. Almost ready for mixing.  This project has been a pretty steep learning curve.  Despite having recorded on many albums over the years, this is the first time I have produced anything on this scale by myself and I am really discovering just how much work is actually involved.  With each step, I have gone off and learned how to do what I need to do so that I can get as much of it done myself as possible.  The upside of this is that I have been able to retain complete creative control; the downside being that it's takeing a very, very long time!  But, I've definitely learned a lot of new skills along the way.

I also am totally indebted to the numerous superb musicians who have so kindly agreed to appear on the album.  These include Kavus Torabi, Alex Ward, Ben Woollacott, Charlie Cawood, Sarah Anderson, Ivan Hussey....amongst others.  Full credits to be revealed soon.

***New Chrome Hoof Live Date***

We are playing Land Of Kings Festival in Hackney on May 5th.  Whilst we've been playing internationally, this will be our first London date in two years.  New costumes, lineup shuffle, new material, special action...

 The new album is now pretty much done and more news will be coming of that soon.  In the meantime, we shall be busily rehearsing for our London adventure.
