If you are looking for a modern primal sound with a hint of 80’s synth from three amazing women, Cayboy are what you are looking for. This Canadian based band have an intoxicating energy and a great sense of humour.  We had the pleasure of hanging out with the girls for two weeks after they won the international competition Recording Festival 2017. This is the second ever Recording Festival. The competition runs over two years. This year 3 acts won out of 520 who applied. Read more here. These 3 winning artists were flown out to Ireland for the 14 day recording session at Grouse Lodge Studios. While they were there we took the time to film the official music video for Caveboy’s single Raconteur.

During the two week of intense recording from the girls, we were constantly getting drawn away from our production office with the upbeat multi layered addictive sounds that were being produced from the studio. Then, nearing the end of the second week there was a change in tone with the ephemeral sounds that echoed through the halls, it was this song ‘Raconteur’. This, in particular came at a time in the two weeks when people where more reflective of the experience that they had had there in the studio. With this in mind we had a chance to take advantage of the beautiful pool area in Grouse Lodge. Caveboy had suggested it and we thought this location was perfect for the sound of this track and so the official music video for ‘Raconteur’ was born.

On the Raconteur music video shoot Caveboy were up for anything and everything. So we shot the shit out of this room with 5 cameras. We also had a Movi on set to give the lovely smooth motion to the shots. We had lots of fun shooting this video, the girls have a natural confidence that is soooo good on camera. They are fearless. 

This is the first single from their upcoming album. We are very excited to hear the rest of the fully mixed songs. This is a band to keep your eyes on. They are Deadly!

Promotional Video for Recording Festival 2015 at Grouse Lodge Studios

It’s fair to say that Kerbute have had a great summer packed with adventures. One of the highlights for us was being the video team for the first edition of the Recording Festival at Grouse Lodge Studios in Westmeath.

If you haven’t heard of it yet, the Recording Festival is an international competition whereby a musical artist can win two weeks residential recording at the iconic studios. This is a huge prize, and there’s nothing else like it out there.

The competition is the brain child of Filippo Gaetani, a talented and hugely experienced Music Producer and artist. Filippo had been to Grouse Lodge before producing ‘Overhead the Stars’ with Peter Doran. We also worked on that project which is how we came to meet Filippo and wound up collaborating again this summer. The atmosphere and surroundings during his first trip to Grouse Lodge inspired Filippo to create the Recording Festival competition, where winning artists would be given a chance to live, collaborate and record with experienced producers and engineers for two whole weeks in the idyllic setting.

The applicants apply with a single song, which then goes through several rounds of judging. The judges panel are made up of industry experts who between them have worked on some of the greatest musical talents of our time. This years winners we certainly deserving, and proved to be both incredibly talented and fun to be around.

This is the promotional video for the 2015 edition of the competition. It is designed to introduce you to the festival and encourage artists to apply for the next edition. We shot a ton of compelling and fun footage over the two weeks this summer, and that content will be edited and released sometime next year, so watch this space. We really loved shooting it, and we’re sure you’ll love watching it.

Recording Festival are currently accepting submissions for it’s upcoming 2017 edition so get on it and apply here: Judging by how great the first one was, the next one is going to be something really special.
