The 801 SESSIONS is Spy Hop Records answer to “The Black Cab Sessions” or “Peel Sessions“. We choose a local musician or band to feature each month and we invite them to a location, either a local studio or landmark where we record and film them performing 3 – 4 original songs and an audio interview. After the session is finished, the crew does post production. Editing the video, compiling an interesting interview, and mixing the audio session. We post each session to spyhoprecords.com All of this is free each month to interested listeners. 801 SESSIONS format is designed this way for three reasons: to keep my students engaged with projects that require a quick turnaround, to promote as many various local youth musicians as we can, and to keep up with the ever-changing digital format of music. Here is the latest session, a singer/guitarist,Sam Burton. To find more past sessions go to www.spyhoprecords.com
