Malone - Promo Video

services provided: arranger, pianist & protools operator

Australian vocalist and recording artist, Gareth Malone approached me to rework tunes from his Night Swimmer album and Darling Heart EP to fit a trio format for live gigging and the creation of a promo video.  Along with percussionist Edwin Sanz, new arrangements were created and we filmed our own promo video, with myself operating the ProTools rig as well as playing keyboards.

artist feedback: "Working with Alex has been a truly enlightening and incredibly positive experience. I have felt fully supported in my creative endeavour at all times and feel I have benefitted significantly from his input. From the start he has been attentive to the projects needs, providing thoughtful, creative suggestions in the planning and rehearsal stages as well as well-considered solutions and valuable advice throughout the recording and mixing stages. He works amazingly fast and efficiently, once memorably taking a stack of my hand-written chord charts and creating a professional folio of printed manuscript in minutes. Whilst recording he instilled a relaxed atmosphere of creative freedom and fun while maintaining a dedicated professional eye on the days necessary progression and absolute technical needs. Always available for advice, he kept in instantaneous communication throughout the mixing stage, often with unbelievably fast responses to requests for pro-tools edits and mix tweaks. I value the time spent working with Alex highly and fully recommend his artist services to any musician or performer at any stage in their career. Whether just starting out, re-launching an established act, changing musical direction or recording and producing new creative work Alex Wilson is definitely the one to work with."
