Sussex-based band Loose Ends Untied popped into the studio last week, to record an album’s worth of fantastic covers!

The four-piece band comprises: Phil White (lead vocals, guitar, ukulele, and mandolin), Frank Jasper (lead guitar, ukulele, and mandolin), Phil Warren (bass/bass ukulele, and backing vocals), and Mark Meakings (percussion, ukulele, and backing vocals).

Meet Phil White….

According to their website: “Loose Ends Untied are a Hastings band who play an eclectic mix of popular melodies from the 1920s to the present day on guitars, ukuleles, mandolin, drums and percussion in their own unique style.”

….Frank….

Well they certainly lived up to that description! Each band member was able to showcase their multitude of skills, as they swapped one instrument for another throughout their 8-hour recording & filming session.

In addition to recording 14 quality songs (including greats such as ‘That’s Amore’ and ‘La Mer’), the band also found the time to film two music videos! Music Video No. 1 shows the band performing ‘Sway’ and Music Video No. 2 has them playing ‘Side By Side’. Both videos were filmed by CMP’s resident senior sound engineer/producer/filmmaker Tom Askaroff, and will eventually be uploaded to the Loose Ends’ official YouTube channel sometime very soon!

The band intend to use the two music videos for a spot of promotion, as they hope to secure a series of cruise ship gigs in the imminent future – on top of all the land-bound gigs they’ve already got lined up (the details for which can be found right here).

If you’d like to get your hands on the brand new Loose Ends Untied CD – or would like to book the band for an upcoming event – then check out their official website for further information.
