The Whiskey Sessions started when three old (by this point) musicians met to get reacquianted and drink som whiskey. The whole think quickly turned into a recurring even about booze, music, and on-the-spot creativity. We get together, pop the cork, and get cracking on writing a song. The goal is to compose, write lyrics, perform and record an entire song in a single evening, preferably before the neighbors start banging on the wall or the audio interface burns up.
We often mix and master when we've had a chance to sober up, but we are proud to challenge ourselves to achieve all of this in a short period of time. And it's a lot of fun too......

Back in Malmö by popular demand, and we properly inaugerated Jonas and Maria's apartment. Everyone who was anyone was there. Ola debuted with vocal wah-wah through a darbuka. Oscar who had been itching to participate in a session brought both the theme, the lyrics and the lead vocal performance. We really dig the vocals, but we don't quite understand the lyrics... and the theme was british indie-pop, but that isn't quite so obvious in hindsight...
Toob got sing as well, Johan did some harmonies, and Mad played shaker with her bracelets. johno was engineer as usual in Ableton Live. Lots of snacks and cats and people. Both Johan and Robban came all the way from Göteborg, that's serious! We set a record with 14 people attending as well as 4 cats.+write a comment
