Recording The Hara

Posted on Posted in Recording

The Hara are a young, all male band made up of

Josh Taylor (Vocals, Keys) from Bolton,

Jack Kennedy (Drummer) from Tintwistle and

Zack Breen (Guitarist) from Preston

Their music is extremely current and they have a very large following, enabling them to headline their own tours around the UK and Europe also in the planning.

The Hara came to Cedar West to record their single Define Us.

With the drum kit set up in the live room, we began tracking to get the drum sound right, with Zack playing in the control room and Josh singing in the Lobby booth.

Vocals were recorded last, at almost 10pm at night, but these boys have such personality that they kept the atmosphere vibrant and jokey and each member helped the other to get the best performance possible.




With the basic mix checked, all that was left was to pose for some photos and then pack up for the day..  The Hara Cedar West
