Tape Notes

By In The Woods

TN:01 Rosie Lowe & Dave Okumu

Sunday, 18 June

Rosie Lowe and her producer Dave Okumu join John Kennedy at Iguana Studios to discuss what went on behind the scenes in the making of her highly acclaimed debut album 'Control'. 

We hear the demos that paved the way and how doing the dishes, wetsuits for pianos and Devon rain all contributed to the making of this album. Rosie shares her experience of handing one’s ideas over to another and the trust that allowed her to relinquish control. And Dave gives a us fascinating glimpse of the creative flow that shaped his input to the album and defines his approach to production. 

Tracks discussed: Me & Your Ghost, Nicole, Control
