New PJB Album – SPITFIRE JUKEBOX1

Great news Rose fans.

Founder ROA member Paul James Berry is back with a new album, and it’s released on the 4th November, 2016.

To mark the launch of the new album, PJB and I caught up over email recently.

JP: Can you say something about the famous UFO-Studios in Berlin and the recording process for your new album?

PJB: Well, I came across the studio a few years back while on tour and truthfully fell in love with the place, especially with the hall. I guess I’m quite sensitive to the vibes from certain buildings. For example, this place was an ancient brewery and the cellars doubled-up as a bunker in WW2, reputedly Gobbles and his family used it. The engineer took me round the place with a torch, it was really creepy and fascinating at the same time…… So earlier this year I booked a session, squatted in the middle of their great hall surrounded by microphones and recorded my songs. Just me singing and playing guitar, piano even a couple of songs on ukulele. All live no overdubs, except a guy that plays a phenomenal cello on a song and my dog that on backing vocals…..

JP: Now that the album is recorded what are your plans?

PJB: Sell the fucking thing and move on. Although I’ve recorded albums before this is really the first time that I’ve been 100% in control. Not just the songs & performance, butalso the mixing, artwork, promotion and the release. Everything! Of course this gives financial limitations to my ambitions, but it’s rewarding at the same time, a real learning curve. So I would like to find some cool partners across the world that share my vision and push it to the next level….

The next level is ‘Spitfire Jukebox 2’ which I want to be a bigger scenario, in colour – ha ha!! I’d like to work with more musicians, which I think would really push some song ideas I have to a completely different depth.

So there you go people, get online, buy the album and support the wonderful PJB. You can find more info on PJB’s various sites:
