The Lockdown Sessions was put together during the
COVID-19 shutdown of the UK and whilst musicians alike couldn't perform live or rehearse, I decided to pull together a pool of musician's who I've worked with both in the past and present and record a select amount of cover's and recorded our version's of them.
Some of the cover's are true to the original and others are our arrangement and style.
The Lockdown Sessions features top professional musician's such as:
Paul Rose - Guitarist with
Band Of Friends / Solo Artist
Julian Hutson Saxby - Guitarist with
McKenna's Gold / Swans In Flight
Zal Cleminson - Guitarist with
The Sensational Alex Harvey Band
Alex Bowler - Bassist with
Nelson McFarlane - Bassist with
The SAHB Experience / Oscar Cordoba Band
