Kathryn Tickell & Peter Tickell - What We Do
'What We Do' is the first release from brother and sister Kathryn and Peter Tickell exclusively as a duo. Individually, they both have an impressive resume with Kathryn having recorded and performed with artists such as Sting, Beth Nielsen-Chapman and Alan Parsons and Peter having worked with Billy Mitchell (ex-Lindisfarn, Jack the Lad etc.) and Peatbog Faeries to name a few.
Maybe Myrtle Tyrtle - Bushwacka
Newcastle favourites Maybe Myrtle Tyrtle play a great mix of music which is hard to catogorise but could possibly be described as hillbilly rock! Having recorded elsewhere the band came to Quayside studios to mix ten of the tracks from this, their first full length album. The guys have been back in the studio recently and have started work on a new album which will be recorded and mixed at Quayside studios and so far it's sounding great so watch out for it!
