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.

Our latest official music video is here. This time we’re back working with Watson ACE on their new track ‘Never Take The Place Of Your Man’. You might recognise the track as this is a cover of the old 80s Prince track, changed somewhat from it’s Pop origins to a folky heartfelt ballad. The track has been getting some airplay in the last few weeks and has been added to the playlist on a number of radio stations including RTE1.

The video features Colm Lynch from Watson ACE and was shot at some stunning locations around Dublin City. The track is being released just in time for the December / Christmas market and is available for download right now from Soundcloud. The track is also available on the band’s current album ‘Backbone’.

We shot the video using our Panasonic GH4, and the Freefly Movi M10 from Let me tell you, GH4 slow motion and the Movi are a winning combination. It allowed us to move quickly around the Dublin City centre, and as quick as we could conceive a shot we could execute it. Additional lighting gear was supplied by Film Equipment Hire Ireland who are always there to save the day. A big shout out goes to Eoin Delaney from Directing Media who helped out on the shoot. His expertise was invaluable.

‘The World Is Wide’ By Peter Doran

Watch the official video here.

We are delighted that today the guys at Folk Radio UK have premiered our official video The World is Wide from Peter Doran’s new album “Outlines”

Peter is a singer song writer based in Ireland and this is his 4th Album. There are some beautiful songs to discover on this new album and  it has been a lovely adventure creating this music video with Peter.

He has a magical way with words and his music leaves you feeling warm and contemplative.

”The World Is Wide dreams of adventure but never buys the ticket… beautiful imagery…the chorus opens like a flower does to early morning sun, but these aren’t friendly pop songs. They do, however, suck you in.”

Folk Radio UK’s review of the “Outlines” sums up the feeling of the album and can describe it in a more elegant way then I, you can read the full review here.

More about the making of the video here and I would recommend popping over to Peters site here and signing up to his newsletter.

“Outlines” is released digitally across all platforms on Friday October 24th.
Physical CDs are available from:
