More information: The album was recorded in January 2020 at Fieldgate Studios, with grand piano and a string quartet, under the supervision of Rob Reed, Andrew Lawson and Ian Lawson. It finally gets it's release almost 12 months later.
"I have filmed many of my past promotional videos at Fieldgate and as they also have a beautiful Fazioli grand piano it was a no brainer to record the album there," Jones explains. "I had distinguished Welsh composer Ian Lawson at my disposal and he was invaluable with his time and expertise in creating the musical scores for the string quartet that we decided to use to complement the album. Thankfully, Ian was able to take the parts from my demos and score them out. Then the real reward was to sit there in the studio as the players brought the score and the songs to life.” (Peter Jones)
This is the first Tiger Moth Tales album not recorded and produced solely by Peter Jones in his home studio and he had to adopt a different approach in regards to the recording process.
“I’m used to working on my own, and having total control, so having to work in conjunction with an engineer and producer was a little daunting at first," he explains. "Rob Reed needs no introduction and Andrew Lawson is a first rate engineer so I quickly learned to relax and enjoy the whole experience.”
