THE ISOLATION SESSIONS

 

Here at STOAKES MEDIA over the past few months, we have been looking at the state of the current situation with dismay. The feeling of helplessness has been overwhelming. What can we do to help and support the fight against COVID 19? And then it came to us! We’re going to record an album.

 

THE ISOLATION SESSIONS is an album of re imagined songs. A collection of DANNY’s favourite songs, all reworked and recorded in isolation. From heavy metal to country, rock and roll to folk this is a huge cross section of music delivered in an entirely different style. Also, Danny has called upon a few friends and as such, the album features collaborations with the creme de la creme of the current rock scene.

It is no secret that Danny is a huge AC/DC fan, he has all their albums, all their films and it was on a particularly long drive home from a gig a few years ago, listening to AC/DC Live at Riverplate, that he had this idea. ‘What would AC/DC sound like if Oasis covered them?’ And the idea for this arrangement was born. Add the incredible vocal talents of BURNT OUT WRECK frontman GARY MOAT and we were cooking with gas.

 

Danny explains ‘During the early stages of lockdown, I very quickly decided that we had to do something to help. I had the idea of recording some songs and asking a few people to play and sing on them. I knew I wanted to include ‘Rosie’ and Gary thankfully loved the idea. Burnt Out Wreck are a fantastic band and I’ve been a huge fan since they started back in 2016. After seeing him do a version of Highway to Hell I just knew I had to do this song and get him to sing it with me’

 

The album will be released in the summer with all money going to help fight against coronavirus.

 

Press Reactions so far:

 

“What an absolutely brilliant acoustic arrangement of this track! It’s acoustic but with ALL the power of the original electric version. I have a huge amount of anticipation for the full album!” – Rock Today

 

“I love the track! Gary Moat, wow, what a voice! Songs in isolation… Excellent!” Colly D, Surrey Hills Radio

 

“Really like the acoustic take. Not every day someone gives a good creative take on a popularised song” ACDCfans.net

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
