Awesome day on a drum experience day at Beehouse Studio, learned a lot about the drums and recording in general, from never having picked up drums sticks before to recording a track all in a few hours. Very friendly, informative and patient tuition, the whole experience is highly recommended. Thanks for a great day, Matt, Herts

Accommodating and Friendly...awesome recording session!

The recording session at the beehouse studio was awesome! I stayed over for two nights at the Workhouse hostel, which is a very lovely and comfortable hostel (shared kitchen, clean toilets, blankets,... ) just beside the studio itself. In the regards of the studio, Jane and Phil, despite their long time experience in producing music, are both very accommodating and friendly and that made everything very smooth and enjoyable. I think that when you record your own music it's easy to get disappointed and stressed about it, in these terms it is fundamental to feel at ease with those you're doing the work with. They overall helped me out with the production of the song, suggesting what they thought was better change/add/edit and what not to achieve the result I aimed at. I'm absolutely happy with how the recording session went and would love to come back one day soon to do some more recordings.

Party Recording Session Success

In May 2016 I had the pleasure of spending the day in the studio with Phil and Jane of Beehouse/Hookstick. I've known them for some time now as I teach their (very talented!) son Henry piano, and I have spent time in and around the studio in the unique and idyllic setting of the Llanfyllin Dolydd, however I was yet to enjoy the experience of being a recording musician at Beehouse. This day was to be different!


A couple of my students play for a local girls football team, and had been having a particularly good season. As a unique way for them to remember this time of their lives, their father approached me about writing a song with the girls and getting it recorded, with the hope of promoting and celebrating the team. I loved the idea immediately and we set about writing the song. I knew instantly where the song should be recorded, and got straight on to Phil Lane.


The production of this song from it's conception to completion was no mean feat. We had a limited time to compose the song, and then only one weekend where everyone was available to record it. Not to mention that the stars of the show were a team of 11 teenage footballers (not experienced musicians) who would have to pile into the studio to record their vocals. As I said, it was no mean feat for any of us –


- except for Phil Lane.


From the moment I got into the studio to record the skeleton track for the girls to sing to Phil, who had been busy recording all week and had made special concession for us on this weekend, was so swift, alert and efficient at his craft that it defied belief. Drums and bass tracks seemed to emerge instantaneously, only the exact number of required takes were recorded – no need for excess. In only a couple of hours we went from having a song which existed almost entirely within my own head to a fully blown orchestrated track with over 20 singers, 3 guitars, piano, organ, drums, bass, ukelele and baritone horn. Not to mention the rap!


Those few hours also saw Phil and Jane conceive and record a complete video to accompany the song. For the girls and their parents this was a truly enjoyable, exciting and rare experience – especially for the ones who learn an instrument. For me it was such a pleasure to watch Phil work, nothing was too big an ask, every possible problem was promptly fixed. I look forward to my next experience in the Beehouse studio.

Drumming Experience

Coming to the Beehouse recording studio has been an fantasticly fun and enlightening experience. I started drumming not long before I got here and the excellently equipped facility has helped me along greatly and has set my sights on a career in the music business. Needless to say it has been the best birthday I have ever had! Amazing. Jake, Bedford

Songwriting Experience

Many thanks Phil for a really fantastic day, and for transforming a very rough idea into a really great track - I am absolutely chuffed with the results!! Really enjoyed the detail you go into, especially in building up the backing vocals. Now that we've started, I have a few more songs if you're up for it. Many thanks and hope to see you again soon, best wishes, Andrew, Cumbria.

Music Studio Experience

What a fantastic day!  I was a bit apprehensive having never had a clue how to write a song but with a few lyrics and handful of chords I've come away with the finished article.  Highly recommended to anyone who loves their music.

Fabulous Day at the Beehouse

We have just had the most fabulous day at The Beehouse with Phil at the controls producing the first track Chris and I have ever recorded. His patience and calm with a couple of complete newcomers to the recording studio was as reassuring as it was brilliant. We will be back!

"What an amazing day!"

What an amazing day!  Phil put me at ease straight away, especially as I was so nervous I didn't think I'd be able to sing a note!  Four tracks on CD and a fabulous experience, I think I will be back for me!  So if you're nervous and not sure whether to do it, get down here and a wonderful day.

Recording for Recorders

For some years I have been writing and playing music for recorders, overdubbing the parts myself: and I had hit a block. The quality of the recordings wes nearly what i wanted, and wasn't gettin any better. I booked a session at the beehouse to see how the pros go about it and for advice on microphone type and placement.

In the course of the day I learned great deal, both in answer to my specific questions and in general conversation about equipment, techniques, software, effects and plugins. I now have a range of possiblities to explore in my own work, as well as a memory stick full of recorder tracks to listen to an remix.

Many thanks. Richard, Stoke On Trent

Songwriting Day

I've just had a songwriting experience at The Beehouse studio, a present from my partner for my birthday. It's corny to say something is a dream come true....but I have to say that this was indeed my dream come true! I wasn't sure where to start with writing a song or putting it into some kind of format that wasn't difficult to listen to afterwards. Jane and Phil make a fantastic team, and guided me through the process without judgement of some of the, frankly, rubbish ideas I came out with. They were quick to latch on to some of the gems that came out of the process, and teased better performances and better developments from those ideas as we went along. They are total professionals with a wealth of knowledge and experience that they were more than willing to share with me. The track we produced today was more than I ever expected, and I couldn't recommend the experience more highly for anyone; from someone who has a seed of a musical idea to someone who thinks they have the finished article. Thank you to you both - I can honestly say this has been the highlight of my year.

Songwriting with Jane and Phil - Songwriting Review

If like me you love music, love to sing, have lots of ideas, but can’t play an instrument and therefore always thought you would remain a frustrated songwriter think again !

I wrote a poem/song lyrics for my husband as a bit of a laugh for his 40th birthday. He found Jane and Phil at The Beehouse online and as a surprise for my birthday bought me a day with them in order to turn my lyrics into a song.

If I am honest, I had pretty modest expectations of what we would be able to achieve in just a day when it takes real artists a year to record an album. I thought the result would be OK but probably a bit formulaic. It might be me (listen for yourself) but given that I turned up with just some words on a page and a “feel” for the sort of sound I wanted, I was blown away by the result. So much so this is now my permanent birthday treat and I have just been again and recorded my third song.

It is so fabulous to feel like I am creating something. I was amazed at the result I was able to get working with Jane (who is a fantastic musician on the melody - she can turn a couple of vague “la la la’s” into chords and a tune in literally 20 minutes) and then Phil on the arrangement so that it sounds like a genuine pop record  - you have to sit with him and see what he does to believe it is actually possible! They are so experienced that it is literally a pleasure and amazing to see it all coming together so quickly.

My advice if you are wondering whether it is for you is to give it a go. It's amazing fun. We are going to buy our kids (5 of them aged 8 to 13) the opportunity to come and record a favourite songof theirs as a cover version and camp on the site next door. A camping mini-break which ends up with an album – what’s not to  like?

Dulcie Swanston  (Shepherd)


Jane : Thanks Dulcie, we've really valued your ideas and working with your material over the last few years,  particularly gifted lyricist with some great ideas about how to get the points over. We'll  be putting a link to Dulcie's latest song shortly.

A passion inspired

What can I say?  Superb!!!!!  I drove two nervous teenagers to the studio for their first ever recording experience; I'm taking home the same two teenagers, however, something has changed.  They have learned so, so  much.  My son played the guitar and the keyboard, as my niece sang.  They left with a recording that they will remember for a very long time.  In fact, I believe that the seed has been planted, and today has fuelled their desire to do so much more.  Thank you so very much, you made them so comfortable from the moment they arrived, and the music they are taking home with them, is outstanding.

Fantastic experience.  From singing only in the shower to having 4 songs on CD now.  Can't wait to come back again and now I  know people won't run out of the room with hands over their ears I may even sing in public!

My Christmas 2013 present from Beth was a 4-hour recording experience at the Beehouse in Llanfellin, and what an experience it was! We travelled all the way from Surrey, South-east England to just over the Welsh border. After going wrong with the directions only once, we arrived early: voices prepped and eager. We had a great day recording some of our favourite songs as duets and were ridiculously impressed with everything. A love of show tunes went down very well, although the love of Whitney - not so much!

We would recommend this to anybody who wants to record themselves on tracks, it's so much fun and worth the money - the sound quality of the finished result was exceptionally professional and we'll be sharing it with all our friends and family... or anyone who asks!

Having not had any experience in recording or arranging music, I found Beehouse Recording Studio extremely professional and efficient and during the five hours, I definitely felt I had achieved more than I ever would have thought I could. I am very grateful to Jane and Phil's hard work for me. Thank you so much!

Recommended recording studio for vocalists

Known Phil for years and he is fantastic at what he does.
The new studio is great, extremely comfortable and a relaxed environment.
I would highly recommend this studio for vocalists especially as Phil is talented at vocal arrangement and harmony and has helped me with these skills for years.

Thank you! x

I hope to do ths again sometime - an excellent experience.

Hitesh, Leicester.

Thanks Hitesh, it was great working with your ideas - your R and B style was very clearly thought out so that although you don't have any musical experience, the ideas were easy for me to interpret into an authentic sound. Some good vocal variations and vocal techniques also - we hope to see you again too! - Jane

Album recording customer

Amazing new studio facility!
This was our second visit to The Beehouse, but our first to the brand new studio. We had an amazing time last year so our expectations were very high before we arrived but wow (!) what a fantastic facility it now is. Phil and Jane were brilliant as always so supportive and hugely talented. We arrived with a simple song composition and, with their help, turned it into a musical work of art! This is not just recording but full production with creative and technical input throughout, whilst always ensuring that we had the final say. We also had the fabulous Kerri Collins, the best female vocalist I have ever heard and such a lovely personality too. What a fun and enormously satisfying two days!

Covers Band Records at the Beehouse

Hi Phil

Many thanks Sorrow is fab and please say many thanks to Jane for Saturday and of course to you for all your professional advice and guidance which was very much appreciated.
This was one of the best experiences I have had and considering I have been in studios prior to this event the feeling of professionalism was evident from the moment we entered your studio and the whole day of recording my album was what I had hoped it would be which was not stressful and fun from the
beginning.
Once again many thanks and look forward to seeing you when we come back for our second album

Regards

Andi Diamond, Newtown
Loosely Covered

Andi's band Loosely Covered attended the studio on Saturday 24th to record an album's worth of covers material - 8 tracks were recorded with the whole band - drummer, guitar, bass player, male vocalist, female backing vocals and Jane provided the keyboards to fill up the arrangements. Two of the tracks have since been cleaned, produced, given additional instrumentation by Phil and Jane and are now ready to go out, with the rest following by the end of the week.

A really enjoyable day made easier and more efficient by the commitment, skill and preparedness of the band for their session. Well done, guys!

Songwriting Day at the Beehouse

It is always a great experience working with Phil at Beehouse and now it's even better. The new studio that Phil and Jane have set up, designed by Phil enhances the experience even further. Located in the old workhouse on the edge of Llanfyllin town the studio is fully equipped, fresh, spacious and with the sound booth adds to the sound and quality. Phil's knowledge, experience and skill makes every visit new and unique and I come away feeling great with a great new song. I'm planning my next visit already.

Tony Skeggs records at the new Beehouse Recording Studio, Llanfyllin

I am very pleased to have been the first client of The Beehouse Studio in Llanfyllin. 
The studio is the new 'baby' of Jane and Phil Lane situated in the 'Workhouse' on the outskirts of the town. The control room is large and well equipped with a great and accurate sound.
 I was able to use the brand new isolation booth for acoustic guitar and vocals which produces a very nice sound indeed. There is also a fantastic array of musical software which Phil knows very well how to operate. Great drum room too and although I haven't used it yet, my son Chaz put some beats down for Phil and it sounds very cool.
Phil has vast experience producing music in many forms and is a great asset in not only being efficient in his studio environment but also with his music knowledge and zest for accuracy.
I look forward to doing more there, good luck Beehouse!

Tony Skeggs, Llanfyllin

The Beehouse says : Thanks Tony, it's great to work with musicians of your calibre, really put the new purpose built facility through its paces productively  with the satisfaction of a great end product.

18th Birthday Party Recording

Came here to record some songs with backing tracks for my eighteenth birthday- had so much fun, it was an amazing experience. Jane and Phil were very friendly and welcoming, and I and my mother certainly learned a lot about singing, pitch, recording, and even playing instruments, even though I didn't bring my guitar. Even tuned the slightly off bits of the songs, hehe. Awesome experience!

Was bought this as a surprise birthday present and was absolutely delighted with it. Very relaxed atmosphere, which is excellent for a complete recording novice, and there are too many tracks to chose from so have a wish list ready! Phil is very knowledgeable and obviously very experienced, and made me feel at ease straight away.
Thank you Phil, and to my man for the surprise! :-)

Christmas present recording

bought as a christmas present the day has been an amazing experience where the tracks I have been practising for weeks were transformed by Phil's technological experience and musical understanding into professional standard recordings that I will be proud to present to friends, family and agents.  I would recommend this opportunity of coming to the Beehouse to everyone.

Amazing day at the studio with my 12yr old son recording his piano and cello pieces. It was an Xmas present but only now got around to actually doing it. Well worth the wait. So interesting to see how the technology plays a part in puttng the music together. A very warm welcome and a nice relaxing atmosphere. A special treat for us both.

We were bowled over by the whole recording process and amazed at the final result. Well worth a visit and Phil's advice was invaluble.

Experience

What a fantastic time we had.  As two amateurs, we were made to feel really welcome by Phil and Jane, and were helped in our sound recording journey all along the way.  What Phil does not know about sound and technology must be zero.  Some superb suggestions, encouragement (and a little challenging), left us feeling we had really accomplished something.   What a great way to spend two days.   Many thanks  Steveb

What can I say? Phil is a genius and yet he's happy to help anyone with any ability. We've come away with a CD we can be proud of and great memories of two fun days. Also a fantastic location in which to be 'creative'. Thanks so much to Phil and Jane.......and for all the cups of tea!! MikeP

Wow ! another brilliant day at the Beehouse. Having recorded last year for my birthday we came back today. I thought the first single we recorded last year might have been a fluke, but Jane and Phil helped us to create an even better song this time around now that they know the music we like. If you have ever fancied yourself as a recording artist but all you have is a few lyrics or just guitar riff in mind, you will be amazed at what they can do. Check out "Coming Home" and "Write Love" on Sound Cloud and see what we mean !

Steve had this as a fiftieth birthday present,  and we all got roped-in.

Beware of getting lost - call Phil and he'll ferry you down the bumpy drive from the top.

Anyway, we recorded and mastered 4 tracks in just four hours - that's really good going.

Engineer/producer, Phil, made us all feel at home, and seemed to coax a good performance from everyone with no hassle. I have my own studio, so I know how great it is to work with a real pro like Phil.

What can I say - everybody is smiling, and we are all chuffed with how we sound.

Well worth the day out, but a bugger to find.

Our day at the Beehouse Studio was a fantastic experience for novice musicians. This was our first ever time in a recording studio and Paul and Jane were so brilliant. Really friendly people, expert musicians and of course lovely dogs!! We will definitely be back in the future.

Fantastic day spent today at Beehouse Recording Studio with Phil and Jane. It was my first time in a recording studio and it was an amazing experience which I would definitely recommend to others.  I have no doubt I will be back again to record more music with this amazing company.  Lewis, Worcestershire.

Music Production Day

I have always been interested in music production and my friends bought me a production experience for birthday.  It was a fantastic day and I have learnt so much.  It has certainly whetted my appetite for production and I can see myself continuing it in my spare time.  A big thank you to Bee House!

Recording Session for Christmas

My wife treated me to a recording session as a Christmas present, as at best a hobbyist guitar player I am amazed at the resulting CD produced by Phil. A friendly and encouraging atmosphere even persuaded me to add my own vocal to the track, on which I played a number of guitar parts when I assumed I would play just two. I would recomend the Beehouse to anyone.

Beehouse was a fantastic experiance, extreamly talented muscian and producer  Phil helped me put sound to my drums and singing to turn two possible songs into songs which I am very pleased with the result, travelled all the way from Hampshire to Wales, seven odd hours in a car and I have not regretted it one bit.

Get a chance then go to Beehouse Recording people and you will be amazed and blown over, super doopy do.

Thank you all and best wishes Robin from ye old Hampshire.

I have had a most enjoyable and informative day with Phil whose knowledge on sound recording is amazing. It took just 5 hours to demonstrate his top quality studio setup and record a song I had written with piano, strings, vocals etc. Superb. He also advised me on starter equipment I should use for my own mini studio. Great guy -great setup. Thanks Charlie,Basingstoke

Thursday, September 06, 2012

Had a great time, was well worth it. Got away with 6 track, and a very chilled out experience. The technology is so up to date, and Phil has so much knowledge, having told me all about his various festival work, recording experience ect. Was in very safe and very patient hands, and came out with a very good result. Thank you for putting up with me forgetting the words! :)

Amazing time at the Beehouse recording studio. Been looking for a studio like this for ages, and now i think i have finally arrived home.

My lovely wife Julia gave me a voucher for 10 hours recording time at the Beehouse as a Christmas present.  We came to the studio for a couple of days to record some family favourites before the first of our children departs for University.  What a great time we all had!  We recorded a mix of individual and ensemble pieces under Phil's calm and skillful direction.  It is truly amazing what can be accomplished with the technology and sound engineering skills available.  Many thanks to Jane and Phil for their hospitality and for making this a very enjoyable and rewarding time in the beauty of the Welsh hills.

Been to Beehouse Studio today had a really good time! this morning before coming i didn't think i'd enjoy it as much as I did but it was really good fun. I'm trained in opera but today I sang a range of opera which I had sang from my grade 8 exam and some modern pop and suprisingly I found singing pop really fun as well. All the staff were really friendly and on the whole I had a great experience!

Turning a vague idea into a great song

We just wanted to write and thank-you for an absolutely amazing day. 
Not only did we get the satisfaction of turning a vague idea into a great song 
(in our opinion !) on the day, but we relive it every day as our kids love 
nothing better than singing "Write Love" at the top of their voices - as the 
neighbour complaints prove !!!

Thanks again for a really enjoyable and educational day. We will certainly be 
back to do it all again. 

What I would pass on to prospective customers is...just go for it. We can't 
imagine you being disappointed at all with the end result. Trust the process 
and Phil and Jane's experience and talent and go with the flow !!!!!

Sunday, April 29, 2012

Hi Phil,

I just want to thank you so much for Alan's special day on Thursday - he's told us that it was one of the best days of his life, well that says it all really.  His blood is in drumming its all he wants to do and you made his day very special so thank you so much.

We so enjoyed Charlie's company too, and hopefully we will keep our friendship going.  ..........

I just want to send you a personal thank you Phil for all the time you spent on the day.

Thursday, April 26, 2012

I haven't experienced anything like it at the recording studios today. Overall I had an awesome time and went over and done the songs as I imagined. Thank you very much to Phill and Charlie who recorded and produced my drum session and drum video. Soon to be on Youtube. :)

Alan, Holywell.

Sunday, April 15, 2012

We have just had the most fantastic 4 hours here, singing our hearts out. One of the best presents I have ever been given to come and sing at a recording studio. As complete novices we were completely unsure as to how it would go. We were made to feel so welcome and within a few minutes we were settled in and raring to go. The outcome is great a CD with 5 tracks of us and we have been made to sound like superstars. The equipment and the expertise here is second to none and I would recommend it to anyone. Already thinking when can we come again. Thanks so much. Pippa and The Wahines

I had a such a great time at The Beehouse Studios. My brother booked out the studio for a day as part of my fantastic Stag Weekend and only told me about it THE NIGHT BEFORE we were due to go into the studio hahaha! So we had one (drunken) evening to write a song and then get it down in the studio the next day. I actually wrote the drum part on the fly, and wrote the lyrics in the car outside whilst my brother and the guys laid down the keys and guitar parts!

It was such a great experience, made all the more enjoyable and hassle free by the fantastic, professional team at The Beehouse. Phil really knew his way around the studio and we watched open mouthed as he corrected notes, tightened things up and mixed it all at a speed of knots!! The final product, although very silly (as it was intended) is really fantastic – I don’t think we’ll be climbing to the top of the charts with “Follow Through” but the quality of recording was certainly good enough for national radio play (I know that for a fact, as I played it on Kerrang! last Sunday!! Haha).

An all-round great experience and the music video element was the icing on top of the very tasty cake.

This was a 40th Birthday gift, I have to say I have had a fantastic day, cannot believe the 5 hours have gone so fast. Had nothing in my mind what to expect but I have to say. It was AMAZING.

Phil is A great guy, easy to get on with and I certainly had a laugh. A bonus extra, I actually got my 1st ever cd track. I don't think I will be a millionaire yet though. Ha Ha

Thanks Again

An enjoyable yet professional session! Phil was very patient and allowed me to re record as many times as I wished and produced a great recording quality at the end.
Thank-You very much!

My first recording ever though it was a good experience a good bit of kit is used and phil knows what he's doing!

Stephen, Telford

Saturday, November 12, 2011

What a weekend - Phil guided us expertly through about three times more work than I really thought possible. Apart from anything else he worked out very quickly what we knew and didn't know, and what I can take back to work on in my own studio. He got some really outstanding vocals down very quickly, layering and double tracking expertly, and we also nailed some great drum tracks. I'd certainly recommend the Beehouse for newbies, hobby musicians or pros looking for a great day's recording experience or why not that all important first album? A blast...

Emma, London

Saturday, October 22, 2011

Ten hour recording experience

My experience of the ten hour recording experience was fantastic. I Got through 13 tracks in that time, which is a great achievement and the outcome was brilliant! The equipment was great and the people were incredibly welcoming and friendly, the advice and making the tracks as professional was phenomenal. I enjoyed it so much, would highly reccomend it to anyone and would expect to be coming back very soon!

Drumming Experience

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed my Drumming Experience yesterday. Your technical (and musical) skills certainly polished up my attempts to keep the beat & it was great to get a behind-the-scenes view of a recording studio.

Thanks very much for putting up with me (us!) & please feel free to put this on your blog.

I'm working on adding another tune to my rather limited repertoire, so watch out - I may be back...

Had an absolutely wonderful time  - Phil made me feel at home and so welcome! Nerves went after the first song - didnt matter what mistakes I made, I never felt like it was a problem. I would love to do this again and do something more original - here's to next time. Thank you so much x

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

I really enjoyed my time at the Beehouse, the tracks sound fantastic and the atmosphere was very welcoming and supportive. I'd definitely use the studio again and would heartily recommend it to anyone!

Great experience!  Thanks Phil - really pleased with the results, and particular thanks for allowing us extra time to get the track finished to everyone's satisfaction.  We've been to other recording studios where they pretty much just want to get it done and get us out ASAP, so it was a really nice contrast.

Andy, Birmingham

First recording experience and what a joy it was !  Phil is very welcoming, puts the most apprehensive "musician" at ease.  Lovely location and setting and I'm really pleased with the results.  With Phil's help there's hope for me yet !!!  Shame Hugo wouldn't join in though :-)

Thanks, enjoyed it immensely.

Great day at the Beehouse.

Arrived for my Christmas present recording experience braving the snow and welsh mountains!

Played three tunes; Rosanna by Tota, Roxanne by The Police and a Michael Buble number.  Great fun.

Haven't heard the final mix down yet but they sounded great on the playback (with some very generous engineering helping things out!).

Probably more focused to people who have some experience in order to get the most out of it but well worth a visit.

Get down here and shed some sticks.....

I really enjoyed doing the song-writing experience. The atmosphere was really friendly and relaxed; I was nervous at first but soon felt welcomed.
The track that I got out of it was better than I expected, great and enjoyable. It was not what I had imagined, but it was something more extra-ordinary than I would have ever imagined. The special effects and backing brought my singing together nicely. :D
Alex B, Oxfordshire :D

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

A once in a lifetime experience that I will never forget. I learned so much about how a recording artist does their thing, although, I'm sure there's so much more to learn, and if I lived nearer, I'd be knocking on the door every day! Loved it! Phil's knowledge of recording vocals and music back ground was immense and so could help me with lines I wasn't so sure of. I felt like a proper recording artist for the day.

Day at the beehouse!

i arrived at the beehouse to be warmly welcomed with kind offers of something to drink, i sat and had a chat with the phil who was going to be working to be recording me that day. he was very friendly and we discussed what we would be doing during the day. i felt extremeyl anxious when i was just starting to sing but i soon warmed up and became less nervous about what i looked and sounded like. I was kindly corrected when i wasn't singing corectly and it allowed me to sing to my best ability. I found it incredibly interesting to watch the technology involved and embarassing yet fun to listen to my self back.

thanks for an amazing day and birthday present!

This day was awesome, the guy (Phil) was really friendly and helpful and enjoyed my music. This in turn made my day absolutely fantastic and I managed to get 7 songs recorded live.

Thanks :)

Thanks Phil for an enjoyable Recording Studio Experience. 16 songs recorded in one day has to be a record! It was money well spent and the family will appreciate the outcome of todays work that is now recorded for posterity on CD.

You may not find out very much about the elusive Molan Spectrum from their website. Still, some things are best left unsaid. Search the website for clues, if you're curious that way.....

To avoid falling under the hypnotic spell of the abysmal catastrophe,go direct to
the inner sanctum, and view their salacious offering, "Rock Off and Die" directly on your computer. A tale of spurned love and business deals with a very unlikely ending. Frustratingly addictive.

Or see it on Youtube at this link : Rock Off and Die.

The only pop video you'll see where the furniture also smoulders, in the deeply unsavoury setting of a transport cafe.

Rock Off and Die is an eclectic masterpiece featuring the oddly endearing vocals of Sir Dangerous Dave. Once infected, you'll need to hear those inspiring lyrics again and again to chant to your boss, unloved ones or just yourself on an off day. DeLorean fans and other anachronistic idolisers will appreciate the appearance of not one, but four of the legendary car icons, and their disappearance into broad daylight in a stream of fire.

Unfortunately, once heard, you won't be able to resist requesting this track to play to all your nearest and dearest at time of family crisis.

Look out for the sequel :

"Hit the Floor"

in which Dave exploits the Scandinavian clubbing market with a brilliant dance track which is bound to irritate - chafe even.

Just had the most fantastic experience at Beehouse recording studio! Although nervous at first, I soon relaxed and came into my own... I never thought I'd end up with 2 tracks sounding so great at the end of my 3 hours. I LOVE them and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Thanks Beehouse!

(hope to come back again sometime in the near future)

Look out for Molan Publishing - this is a brand new publishing company currently providing brilliantly entertaining and innovative tracks to the European dance and disco market. A series of singles for artist "Molan Spectrum" are to emerge this summer, this company being the brainchild of songwriter Jan Mosiewicz, and dynamic music production team "Lane and Lane".Tracks range from Europop through R and B to ballads and musicals.

We’ve had a busy few months here at The Beehouse. To ensure we are providing the best possible music production The Beehouse Recording Studio has recently undergone a major revamp, reorientation and technical upgrade. We have been fortunate enough to acquire the main monitoring system from the now defunct Forge Studios in Oswestry. They are super high quality dynaudio M3A’s as used by The Prodigy. We have upgraded the soundcards to Mark of The Unicorn – MOTU 2408 mk 3 which now gives us full 96 ktz capability throughout the entire recording, mixing and mastering process. Our front end is a fully loaded Yamaha 02R96 mixing desk with up to 72 channels of digital and analogue inputs. Recording is still done using Cubase SX3 and Protools but is soon to be upgraded to Cubase 5.

To assist Phil in the Studio we have enlisted the help of music producer Tony Skeggs (renowned singer songwriter) to help us with the ever increasing number of Recording Studio Experiences. Tony not only comes to us with his wealth of expertise but brings his own inimitable style and sense of fun to proceedings.

Over the past few months we have been very excited to have had Molan Spectrum in the Studio. An amazing new innovative musical collaboration consisting of several vocalists producing songs written by Molan songwriter Jan Mosiewicz and developed by Lane & Lane Music. On the brink of release is the new single ‘Rock off and Die’ by Molan Spectrum featuring Dangerous Dave on vocals. The video to accompany the release of the single is currently in production. The studio has been inundated with Recording Studio Experiences - vocalists, songwriters, drummers and bands from all over the country all of whom have been a joy to meet and work with. We have been amazed by some of the impressive talents we have come across, many of whom we have requested back to work on other projects with us.

My 'Experience' on 23rd April 2010
Didn't know where I was going and what I was doing for the day - it was my birthday and my partner arranged it all as a surprise!
We ended up recording 4 songs. All Ican say to anyone who loves to sing and wants to, or gets the chance to do this, to DO IT - you won't regret it I promise. It was a fantastic experience!

I am a complete novice when it comes to music but had the time of my life.
My 2 children also took part and we are very proud of the outcome.
I would recommend this experience to anyone from the very talented to those of us who have limited ability

A return visit to the studio, and an even more enjoyable experience. Had a fabulous day doing one of the things I enjoy doing most! Thanks. Craig, Birmingham.

We had a massive amount of fun last time we came and this was no different. I think Phil is one of the greatest dudes to work with: tactful and interesting and he was able to get some great sounds out of us. I hope we can come back again and do some more tracks, thank you so much. Amelia, Bewdley

I enjoyed the singing. Phil was very helpful and gave me great tips. I would come back again and have the experience. :) I was really nervous before I came, but within half an hour, Phil made me feel so welcome :D

I have had a great time here at Beehouse Studio. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to sing a note due to nerves but with Phil's encouragement I soon got through the first song without too much trouble at all. (and the brandy helped thanks ;-)

I am very pleased with the final 4 songs and I wish I could do it all over again tomorrow!

An excellent experience, I was absolutely fascinated with the whole event. Phil has truly mastered the art of recording and put it across brilliantly to one who is not that techy. With all the technology to work with I felt like I had died and gone to heaven. I would recommend the experience to any one who is interested in how music is recorded.

Well my girlfriend bought the days studio experience for my 21st birthday gift - and what a great and unique present!

Not only was the day really good fun and we left with a CD in hand, but it was really great to spend time with my friend practicing our tunes from our uni days prior to attending.

The equipment was good, the ideas invaluable, and the work ethic supurb! I would strongly advise this as a gift.

Thank you Rachel!!! :)

My daughter had a great experience recording Footprints In The Sand. Phil and his wife were very hospitable and made us feel very welcome.
Before long Isobel had recorded her song and we were both amazed at the skill Phil displayed.
We even had time for a fun mother and daughter blast at Mamma mia. We had a great time. Thank you very much. Would highly recommend.

What fun combined with the pain of my voice...! Phil will be performing some magic on our disk! thanks for a great day, Nic
Wow, I actually sound like Kiki Dee!! We have had a riot. Huge fun with lovely magic-makers! Thank you - David

I just had a very productive 2 days here, getting four songs done. I'm incredibly pleased with the results. My only regret is that I can't stay for longer and keep working! There is no lack of experience or creativity to be found here and I would recommend it to all.

Some brilliant, wonderfully memorable tracks from a talented songwriter..... Look out for them on Noochoon

I was given a 10 hour recording experience - an absolutely fantastic present from my three great children. It has been a briliant experience and great chance to record some of my favourite songs using high quality equipment and real expertise and musicianship from Phil.

A very warm welcome at the Beehouse. I had a brilliant experience, with plenty of time to perfect my CD. For my first recording experience I had a wonderful day and I will definitely do it again. Working with such an experienced producer made the day a learning experience as well as a chance to sing. I will be back soon!! Thank you!

A fantastic experience and an education at the same time!
Phil made sure that my nerves soon subsided.
I had this as a birthday gift-but this would be a brilliant gift for any occasion.

Thanks for an excellent day

....Phil Lane, the Beehouse Production Engineer, whom I only met last May and whose genius has most to do with this album. Whilst I wrote the words and original music, it is he who gave them life. Of course he is infuriating. He seems able to play any instrument he chooses and is predominantly self-taught. He intuitively knows what rhythm and instruments to go for and seems to have an almost encyclopaedic memory for sound and its origin. He has been a joy to work with, and his arrangements and production underline his amazing talent.

I had three sessions will Phil producing a song which i wrote. Within those 3 sessions I saw the song develop and was most encouraged with what was done. I am so happy with the result and I intend to put a album together with other songs which I have written. In all I had a great time and I have definitely come away encouraged to write more songs for the future.

Loved every minute

Thanks Phil and Jane

nervous at first, but soon got in to the swing of it as I was made to feel at home from the moment I walked in the room. Had a fantastic time; would recommend this experience to any future wannabee popstar.
