The idea of ‘The First Dance Album’ came about towards the end of 2010. We had played around 50 weddings that year, and had been asked to play and learn most of the first dances. We would always do this to the highest standard, and it seemed a shame to leave it at that (often the first dances are one off songs – unique to the bride and groom). The band had the strongest line-up, live, and in the studio, and we had recorded and released countless tracks with our original band Redwood – tracks that were played on TV and radio worldwide. So we figured we could apply that knowledge and experience to recording an album for Rollercoaster. The aim was to create a unified sound. And hopefully we achieved that. Thanks to the happy couples of 2010-2011 for the inspiration – it was great fun recording. Volume 2, here we come…
