David Attenborough would describe the studio as Seamie O’Dowd’s natural environment.
Multi-instrumental, full of ideas, it’s always a joy to share a recording process with him.
“I might just try one more thing”, he often says. I never know what it will be or what instrument he will take out, but it’s always gold.
This video shows him at his best. The track is laid down at this stage bar the fiddle melody. I give him a rough sketch of the melody I had in mind, and literally 5 minutes later he has 3 flawless but different takes laid down. And they’re fast!
A real pleasure.
