The Phonics – Studio Live Sessions

Here are a couple of tracks I recorded for Stereophonics tribute band, The Phonics.

These two tracks were recorded live at Sound Affects Music Studios. We recorded the live band first and then overdubbed Vocals and Acoustic Guitar (Mr.Writer).

These guys have a great authentic sound and as you can hear, sound just like the real thing!
