Love Street Update

Well what can I say. The session at Real World was amazing (as always) and our usual thanks and hugs to Lisa, Carol, Jerome and the whole Real World team. George Shilling worked his magic as our Producer assisted by Real World's in house technician Louis Rogove and Adam Drabble. We were also lucky enough to be joined by our vocal arranger April Andersen and two other brilliant musicians, John Telfer (sax and flute) and Lester Osbourne (percussion).

We managed to lay down the majority of all 10 tracks of the new album and George is now working on the rough mixes.

Watch this space for new news.

It's been a really exciting year for Love Street. We have been working together in a series of studios around the country including the amazing Stage 2 Stage Studios in Bath We can not recommend this studio highly enough. Great sound, lovely people, amazing rooms and top notch coffee and tea. Also check out their own label. Hanna is now truly ensconced in the Love Street family and WOW what a difference she has made. We have also made the transition from Folk Rock to full on Prog. In three weeks time we will be back in Real World with our producer George Shilling to start the process of recording our second album "The Alchemists Daughter" which we will also be releasing on vinyl with lots of special goodies. Real collectors items for all you Lovers out there.

Line Up Changes

Unfortunately due to the present UK and Finnish Covid regulations Hannah the fiddle player will not be able to visit us from Finland to play at the Fantasy Forest Festival..   However , we have been very lucky in persuading the very talented multi-instrumentalist Martin Solomon ( ) to step in on fiddle  for the festival. We will also be joined by the wonderful and similarly talented April Anderson on keyboards, vocals and flute. We are playing the Dragon stage on Sunday 18th July 2021 from 16:00-17:00. Hopefully see you there.

Well Love Streeters, we are thrilled to introduce our two new members of the band. Filling the drum stool is Kevin (Kev) Cook a very experienced chap who does a mean line in bad jokes ... you have been warned!!!!!!. Grooving away on guitar will be Paul Mearing who has depped for us in the past , we liked his playing so much we invited him to join us. You can read more about these illustrious fellows in the Bio section above. All we need now to finnish the band is a fiddle player; luckily enough for us the wonderfully talented Hanna Heinonen from the Finnish  band Greenrose Faire has agreed to help us with her fiddle to complete the second album and for some gigs yet to be confirmed.
