Strikesound are a 14 piece male voice choir based in Cornwall. When Jeanette Eathorne, their musical director approached the VIP Lounge with a view to recording an album, her request presented us with a logistical problem. How were we going to accommodate so many singers? The answer was a collaboration with the Acorn Theatre, just over the road. With the help of resident engineer, Steve Warhurst, the choir, accompanied by Margaret Bilkey on piano, assembled on the Acorn’s main stage and were mic’d up and recorded live. The files were then taken to the VIP Lounge where the album was mixed.
The album consists of 19 songs ranging from traditional songs of Cornwall to sea shanties to popular modern songs from the charts and shows.
The group has a constant schedule working in hotels, village halls, churches and chapels around Cornwall.
