Newton Country – Set Sail

This up and coming band from Bath got in touch with me to mix stems that they had already recorded. I enjoyed this job, country music is not something I’ve done before but this was a great track to work with, well recorded, well written and structured, with great performances all round. One challenge was that the lead and backing vocals were recorded together on one mic, making balancing them a little more tricky, however the band had carefully positioned themselves and the mic, so it worked well. I used the fact that the chorus repeats to make a vocal double that I could use to make the chorus bigger.
