Mark and Maxine from the band COW met Steve Ellis (voice of the love affair) in a clothes and record shop in Brighton in the summer of 2013.
We started gassing about various interests, mainly music, and we struck up an instant friendship.
Steve mentioned that he was thinking of putting together a new solo LP of his own material and songs from other writers too.
We sent Steve half a dozen of our own songs waited for a bit, then Steve suggested we record two of the songs together, we spent a few days at Black Barn studio in Ripley Surrey, and the job was done !
Engineered by Sir Charles Rees and with a little help from some of our mates…..including Kenny Carroll on keys, Paul Weller on guitar and piano, Tom Heel on drums, Andy Lewis on bass guitar and Kev Wallbank on tuba….the double A was in the bag!
Tracks “Rise” will be going on Steve’s new album and “Up” being put on COW’s new album both due out later this year.
Enjoy the preview
Love and more love
Mark, Maxine and Steve
Be happy and soulful but most of all Keep The Faith…
