Recording of the 2nd album and new live band
Half of the year 2015 has already passed, as summer is just getting started here in Europe (or at least in the Nordic region). So far, 2015 has been a very busy year in the Sylvaine camp. During the first months of 2015, I finished writing the upcoming second album. I had already recorded 4 songs for this album at the end of 2014 and would finish up the rest of the recording during the spring of 2015. About a month ago I entered Drudenhaus Studios to record the remaining 3 songs for the album together with engineer Benoît Roux. The recording was very successful and I am super happy with the results we got! Stéphane “Neige” Paut from the French band Alcest joined me in the studio and did an excellent job laying down the drum tracks for those songs. I still have some work to do during the summer, but the recording is slowly coming to an end! The album will be mixed and mastered during autumn this year, but no release date is set yet.
At the same time that I was finalizing my second album, I also started rehearsing with the new live band. It has been very exciting to finally play this music with a full band and I am very happy with the progress we are making! We just can’t wait to get out there and play for all of you, and hopefully that will be reality during autumn/winter of 2015 or from the beginning of 2016. In the near future, I will be presenting the members of the live band.
In other words; it’s been a busy six months, with a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes. More exciting plans are being made for the future, so stay tuned for more info on the upcoming album, concerts and more!
