Paul McManus & The Mayblooms
Paul McManus approached me after a Luke Legs & The Midnight Specials show to ask if I would do some session keyboard work for his album, to be recorded in the famous Sing Sing studios in Melbourne. I'd always wanted to record at the venerable studio, so I jumped at the chance. A handful of rehearsals later, Paul and what became known as the Mayblooms band put down bed tracks for the album with Engineer and Producer Davin Pidoto at Sing Sing. Playing with the baby grand piano, clav, Hammond B3 and a variety of odd effects pedals with an on-point group of musicians was a great pleasure.
The recordings have rested for a few years, but Paul has recently dusted, polished and released his wonderful Australian folk record.
