New Album for 2020
Gavin Povey is currently working on a new Album for release in 2020
The album will be live-in-the-studio recordings of solo Piano and Voice, consisting of his own compositions and some covers.
Inspired by having seen the BBC4 Arena documentary – American Epic – where the first recording machine in America was reconstructed and various artists were invited to record in the same method as in the earliest recordings of the 1920’s, that is, within the time it took to ‘cut’ a 10″ disc at 78 rpm.
However not having such a machine, Gavin decided to pick up the gauntlet and parallel this method, by simply recording complete performances, of piano and voice, each song from start to finish without the safety net that modern production techniques offer, save for a little reverb and compression after the performance was complete
