For the recordings of his new album, the German singer/songwriter Dirk Schelpmeier was at Blackbird Music Studio. Together with Natalie Ploeger on double bass, Gunter Papperitz on grand piano, Rhodes, Wurlitzer and Mini Moog, as well as Bela Brauckmann on drums, he laid down the basic tracks of his fourth LP on which he mixes Chanson and Folk with elements from Blues, Country, Rock and Pop.
Final Stair have already become old acquaintances of the studio’s team, so we were extra happy about the fact they put the confidence in us to record their new album. Two weeks of rock’n’roll ahead with the twins Istvan (vocals & guitars) and Denes Voros (bass), new band member Andre Seidel on the drums plus in-house recording engineer Michael Ungerer.

For the live recording of several tracks the Berlin-based rock band FINAL STAIR came to our studio yesterday. Besides their high-energy music they played some acoustic versions of their songs. They also got to do a video shoot in our big live room. We are very excited about the results and wish Istvan (voc, g), Denes (b) and Ace (dr) all the best for their up-coming tour through Europe in April. It was a pleasure to work with you guys!
