A departure from their previous albums, Livingston Sessions was the first batch of recordings by the band done in a professional recording studio, Livingston Studios in Wood Green, London, with BBC world music engineer guru James Birtwistle at the helm. Recorded completely live, with no overdubs and no edits, the goal of the recording experience was to capture the energy of a live Groanbox performance, but with completely new material meticulously recorded in a studio environment.
Featuring 16 original compositions, Groanbox are once again keeping listeners on their toes as they delve into new terrain, mixing genres, flavors, tempos, time signatures, and instruments that cross the spectrum of world folk, contemporary classical, and rock music styles.
A DVD of the sessions is available for sale. Paypal Groanbox $10 and it’ll get sent to you!
