Main Street Sessions veterans The April Maze returned to the studio on the 17th of January 2011. This marked their fourth Main Street Session (if you include the Protest Song/Bed Intruder Song) and this time to change things up they brought with them the delightful Faye Blais. Faye is a Canadian singer songwriter who is touring Australia and New Zealand with The April Maze.
Having shot several sessions before with these guys I knew what to expect and Faye added a delightful new enthusiasm to the mix, with several of her songs being shot with April Maze acting as her backing band.
Here is the first track we shot on the day;
Canvas. A single previously released by Faye, it was one of the few songs of hers that I had heard prior to filming the days session. First setup of the day was dragging the chairs into the room and getting everybody comfortable enough to sit through potentially many takes. Being professionals however, they managed to get this song out in the first take.
