Role: Musical Director/Drummer/Programmer
I got the call from Vanquish’s management to put a band together for some introductory shows that they had coming up. I sourced the band (drums, bass, guitar, keys) using the brief given by management and agreed the budget for the project. I arranged the songs given for stripped back shows to create a sound that was true to the recorded versions of the songs but not overpowering, allowing the girls vocals and the melodies of the songs to take centre stage and showcase the quality of their music.
Working with Vanquish has also led me to arrange a TV edit version of their song ‘Bailando’ for the girls to sing on a TV performance/interview.
Label: Non Stop Records
