Over forty different acts have already signed up for the Big Busk which takes place in Shrewsbury Saturday 5 April.
New shropshire recording studio
A local band from Shropshire has created a recording and graphic studio for other local bands.
David Sylva and Aaron Collyer, from Shropshire band Madison, have joined forces to become business partners. Both have a passion for music and decided they would help other Shropshire bands get ahead of the game by creating a professional studio for them to hire out at cost effective prices along with graphic design for their band artwork and promotional items.
Alley Cat Studios, based on Stafford Park in Telford, has taken months of planning and design. The new studios have now been finally finished and are ready to welcome in the new musical talent.
Business Partner David said:
“We decided to build a studio because I’ve been recording music for about 5 years, just in my bedroom and realised that I could get a much better sound quality if I had the proper facilities.”
Aaron Collyer will be looking after the design and artwork side of things, David added:
“Aaron has been a graphics designer for about 4 years so we decided to put our heads together and start up a business. The basic idea being that we can offer bands a package deal of recording music and having a logo designed.
“We hope young college bands will use our facilities as we are still young ourselves, so we thought that would be a good target market.
“Of course we would welcome anybody of all ages to come and use our studio as well.”
They are offering various different packages for those wishing to use the studio. The packages are flexible and can include everything a new band would need; recording of EP’s and albums with editing, CD cover artwork, business card, poster and flyer design and even banner and drum skin design.
The studio is also available for use by the hour, to find out more call Dave on 07891 853 746 or Aaron on 07952 313 332.
