So many great things happened during my trip to Paisley Park last weekend. A highlight was being given a studio tour and behind the scenes insight with Joshua Welton.
During the tour he previewed the album at the mixing desk, allowing us to hear the individual stems featuring a full orchestra, before blasting the first few tracks on the crystal clear sound system. A real treat.
It was great to meet Joshua and get an understanding of the album I was part of. During our chat I promised him that I would create a ‘many faces’ style portrait of him. It was only fair as I’d done one of the rest of the band, including his wife, Hannah Welton.
