Groove Stew is comprised of friends that formed a cover band " Green Season" that has played 50+ gigs in 5 years. "We would use the shows to try out the originals we had worked out." In that time we learned that anyone can get a gig... Try getting asked back! The setlist is crucial as is the energy you portray. We got asked back enough to keep doing it and that has led ( finally!) to this Album of songs. These were recorded at Ultrasound Studios under the tuterledge of the mighty Joe Clapp. With Antelope Orion Interface, Neve, A.P.I. preamps U.A. compressors and a plethora of Logic Pro plug ins we were all happier than a horse in a field of Hay!
