It all began with a fun recording project, when Tom Hinton contacted his long lost buddy Jason Baldock to record ‘a song or two’ at The Crunch - Jason’s amazing recording studio near Norwich. One song became two and two became ten - and grand plans for a proper studio album called THE MOUNTAINEER were laid. Jason introduced Andy Fairclough and he was soon involved recording the Hammond Organ, Piano & Mellotron parts. Paul 'Sawty' Sawtell, heard some of the tracks over the summer, while they were in progress and loved the 60’s vibe. He quickly signed PHOENIX ROAD up to his new Cambridge based label; Alley Club Records label, where the CD album can now be ordered.
That might have been the end of it, but Jason and Andy were up for playing live... Tom didn’t need too much persuading and set off to find a more musicians for the live shows. He was lucky enough to find the wonderful Ivan - a musical wizard recently moved from Croatia to North London. Ivan loved the songs and the sound and a match was made. Simon Brice, one Tom's oldest buddies and former band mate, was up for playing lead guitar and so the line up was complete.
On 1.12.19, PHOENIX ROAD played their debut gig and album launch party at The Portland, Cambridge. The entire album was performed live, in track order to a good sized audience - and what a fun night that was!
More gigs are to be announced in 2020 and a new album/recording project is currently underway.
