Blueprint Blue record with Supertone

Blueprint Blue are from South London and in October will be recording tracks at Supertone Records' brand new studio in Valencia, Spain.

The band is the brainchild of guitarist and songwriter, Elliot Hayward, who is joined by ex S.C.U.M. members, Huw Webb (bass) and Melissa Rigby (drums). James Cartwright and Ed Parkinson will also feature on backing vocals.

Produced by Mazzi Star founder David Roback, they chose the Supertone Studio due to the selection of mostly vintage guitars, amps and recording equipment, plus Simon's "less mics, give more" philosophy.

Owned by husband and wife team Simon Campbell and Suzy Starlite, the studio was built primarily for their ongoing recording projects.

Nashville has a Fat Bottom

Supertone Records flew out to Nashville Tennessee in 2013 to visit old friends, check out the music scene and look for potential places to relocate. Walking around East Nashville we stumbled upon the fantastic Fat Bottom Brewery. Real friendly people and a great place! They even gave us these beer koozies/coosies as a gift! Needless to say, we will be going back... for more beer of course!
