The following artists were performing onstage including Hozier, Ryan Sheridan, Little Green Cars, Gavin James, Riptide Movement, Hudson Taylor & The Coronas.
3 out of those 7 artists have recorded in Westland Studios including Hozier, Ryan Sheridan and Little Green Cars and also members of both Riptide Movement and The Coronas have used the studio! (so could I say 5 out of those 7 artists have recorded here?).
Needless to say this was a very proud moment for ADK Music Group :) 
And WOW - what an amazing gig - thoroughly enjoyable!

Alwyn producing Amelia Adler's project with string quartet

​Alwyn at the helm producing Amelia Adler's project and directing the string quartet.

Once the drums, percussion, piano, bass, guitars & vocals have been tracked and edited the focus turns towards the string section. After having composed the string parts Alwyn is having fun hearing the real string section bring the songs to life (in Westland Studios Dublin).

Our very talented (also polite & cool) assistant Bebhinn McDonnell made this great short video about the process :)

We hope you enjoy!

Kyle, ADK Music Group.
