A brilliant Brazilian band!
I had to go a long way to do this album... in the hottest studio in the world!
Then, back at Stoke, I worked on my backing vocal, the lead vocals and mixing with the great Shaun.
Love this track!

Her comment on the production...
'Hi Stuart, it sounds great!! The drumbeat is really gripping and starts to sound like a heartbeat, which I love and the bass is really groovy and heavy when it kicks in. I think Juliet's vocals sound amazing, especially toward the end. Everything is intense the way I wanted it. I really hope I can make an entire album soon, that's my goal! Thank you both!'
Her comment on the production...
Stuart, I am completely in awe!! I listened to it a couple of times this morning and then had to run to work, so I didn't have time to respond. It's transformed entirely, it captures the melancholy and exotic elements that you picked up on so well. I also love how it builds energy as it goes on, and the strings are just luscious! I have no idea how you came up with this so fast, you are an absolute genius. Thank you so much!
SA born Singer Songwriter Jess Yallup is the husky and dynamic voice behind her new solo project 'Selkie'.
Jess who is 100% South African, but of Celtic descent ,spent her youth gazing out from her bedroom window at the beautiful Indian ocean on Durban’s Northern Coast.
The Selkies in Celtic Mythology gazed yearningly at the Ocean in a hope of one day returning to their natural form. With themes like Nostalgia and Yearning and lyrical references to the Weather and the Ocean, and with her dark eyes, fiery hair and Celtic voice - Selkie was a name perfectly fitting.
Selkie's debut single, "Your Eyes" produced by Stuart Epps, won the "Singer Universe" Best Vocalist competition with "Your Eyes".
The competition is held monthly in the US, and is judged by Dale Kawashima - music publishing exec who has worked with Michael Jackson & Prince.
'It has been an absolute privilege to have the opportunity to work with Stuart Epps. His insight into our music, both from an artistic and a production stand-point has been invaluable. We couldn't want for anything more from our recording, ... and what a great man too! We advise anyone looking for the right sound to use him and we hope to have the chance to work with him again soon. Legend!'

Sweet Angel Blue
Singer/songwriter Georgia Mae, a Queensland Conservatorium student, attributes the evolution of her personal brand of musical fusion to an eclectic upbringing steeped in music. 'I grew up in the Northern Rivers of NSW, Australia, and started piano lessons there when I was 4, so the piano is like an extension of my being. I was playing guitar by 12, and have been singing my whole life. 'A classically trained musician and vocalist, Georgia Mae now writes, performs and collaborates with musicians around the world.
Her comment on the production...
'Stuart! Oh my goodness, this is incredible and I absolutely love it! It has brought me to tears! Everything you've done is spectacular. The vocals sound amazing, as well as the added synths, and your guitar soloing is beautiful. The song has just lifted two-fold! I really love it. I'll have to have another few good listens to see if there is any possible changes to discuss, but I'm not sure I will find any!
I'm so so grateful to have been able to have this opportunity (and I can't believe Stuart Epps is soloing in my song! Amazing) :)
Thank you so much
Some tribute artists look like their idol, some sound like their idol. Paul Bacon as Elton John does both! Close your eyes and you won’t believe your ears, open your eyes and you won’t believe them either! You simply won’t find a closer tribute to Sir Elton John.
