Party time: Nick and Rui Blow.
Six months ago Come to Dolly
vocalist Nick Blow quit his day job
-- and has been working fulltime
ever since. Along with wife, Rui,
Nick started a home recording
studio -- Sister Lung Productions
-- and has invited bands and
artists who have recorded with
them to play at The Cabana this
Saturday, November 26.
Largely self-trained in sound
engineering, Nick has been at the
mixing desk for eight years, but it
wasn't until June this year that
he and Rui decided to open Sister
Lung Productions to local bands.
It's often a hard road but you
learn more every time you record
so you get to a position where you
are confident in your skills and
you're only limited by how much
you want to learn,'' Nick says.
Recording other people's music is
a big responsibility and I owe it to
them to do the best possible job.''
Setting up a studio is not only
expensive and time-consuming, it
can also be confusing. Imagine 14
microphones attached to a drum
kit -- the sound engineer has to
know what each mic is doing and
how to make the kit sound its
best. Instead of using soundproof-
ing in the studio, Nick has opted
to use high ceilings and wooden
floors for a natural sound.
I'm so proud of being part of
these recordings and the songs are
so good, we thought it would be
great to get all the bands together
and have a bit of a party night,''
Because the bands are so tal-
ented it makes my life easier and
I really enjoy the process -- if I
didn't, well, it would be just
Rui agrees, saying that as well
as being practical and technical,
being a musician himself ensures
that Nick can actually think like
the clients, almost knowing
instinctively what they want.
Communication is key here, too.
A lot of the bands who record
with us for the first time are ner-
vous and unsure what is going to
happen, so it's really important to
talk them through and make sure
they're comfortable,'' she says.
Genre means nothing in the stu-
dio because everyone has a com-
The Sister Lung Productions
Showcase, on Saturday November
26 at The Cabana, features
Horusset, Gunt, Diamond Doll, Joe
Jackman, Steve Briggs and Andrew
Burch, as well as Come to Dolly.
