KMJ Recordings has announced that it has linked up with Brighouse & Rastrick to become their 'Recording Company in Residence'.

The collaboration with the company set up in 2004 and which has gained widespread acclaim for its brass band output will see the West Riding band release recordings under their own label, while both will also work on projects commissioned by others.

Trio to come

Prior to the Coronavirus pandemic lockdown, the band in the studio working on three CD projects which will be completed and issued as soon as it possible to do so.

In the meantime, the pairing have worked together releasing a series of socially distanced videos, recorded at home entitled 'Concert in the Living Room', with KMJ editing the audio and the videos being assembled by members of the band.

They have already been viewed half a million times around the globe with the next instalment currently in the pipeline.

Thrilled

B&R Chairman Ste Cavanagh told 4BR: "We're really thrilled to be entering this agreement.

Having completed numerous projects together in the past we're delighted that this partnership now enables more of our exciting music-making to be recorded at the highest quality and to be enjoyed by fans and supporters."

Fantastic news

In response, Keith Johnson of KMJ Recordings added: "It's fantastic news. There's perhaps nothing quite like recording 'The Floral Dance' with Brighouse, and to be able to work regularly with such fine musicians and conductors is a privilege, and we're looking forward to some exciting sessions in the future."
