Sugar & Spice' - The Production

I'd like to say a big, big, even bigger thanks to everyone who injected their enthusiam, time and musical genius onto this album. I'd also like to thank all the people I know including family and close friends, and indeed complete strangers who encouraged me in my musical endeavors and to record this new album.

All the tracks on the 'Sugar and Spice' album were recorded at Close Studio (a private home studio), with the exception of 2 songs:- 'Dangerous' and 'How I See It', which were recorded at Swimming Pool Studios in London with Jerry Moody, a very talented musician and songwriter. Jerry Moody performed most of the instrumentation instrumentation on those tracks, apart from acoustic guitar. They were then remastered at Close Studio by Steve Rispin Production Services.

The track 'I Love You' - also initially recorded at Swimming Pool Studio - was reprogrammed at Close Studio but we kept the wonderful programmed synth track that Jerry had created for the song.

By Sound on Sound (Recording Music Magazine). FEB 2003
Based on 3 tracks submitted prior to album release.
“The opening song on jeanettes’ demo demonstrates that she has a very commercial sound, with a catchy hook played by a Hammond organ.” (track ‘I Love You’) “This serves to catch your interest and draws you into the songs’ main arrangement. All songs are based around the acoustic guitar…”

'LIVE' at HALF MOON - Putney
My name is Thomas...we briefly chatted on Monday at the Half Moon Putney after you performed.
I just wanted to tell you that you were amazing and your music really touched my heart.

Thank you Thomas :)


'LIVE' at 12 BAR CLUB - WC1
I just came home from the 12 Bar Club in central London. One of the city's hottest acoustic venues and espied the lesser spotted UK EvORite, Simon Walsh, though alas it wasn't his own gig this time around. He was sat behind a borrowed, stripped down perspex drum kit slappin' the skins in perfect time to a wonderful mutual friend of ours - Ms Jeanette Murphy. A south London superstar of limited virtual presence, but exceptional songwriting talents, though she does have a fabtastic website at http://www.jeanettemurphy.com and a terrific new CD called Sugar & Spice.
Tracy Chapman and Macy Gray should sit back and listen to get some tips from our Jeanette. Also making appearance on clarinet for one song, Greg from 'Dreamfield'

Ciao for now - Jeza
