The Creative Sessions

Started in December 2005, with 157 sessions from 149 different bands, most of which have been unsigned or local to the Brentwood/Essex area.

The first five groups of sessions were held in the Creative Recording Studios in East Horndon. The sixth sessions were held at the Essex Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre in Havering-atte-Bower, where we welcomed 25 artists over 24 hours. The seventh sessions kicked off with a one-off recording at the old Phoenix FM office in the Baytree Centre, Brentwood featuring Tokyo’s finest Carter USM-tribute band Clinton USM, and was then followed by another 24 hour session featuring 23 more artists at the Stage Bar in the Brentwood Centre. Seven of the bands also performed live acoustic sets in the Phoenix FM studio on the Saturday, meaning we undertook a record 30 sessions in the 24 hours!

The eighth sessions took place in the Foyer Bar at the Brentwood Centre on Saturday 13 April and Sunday 14 April 2013. Some of the bands brought their fan clubs and the recording resembled a gig at times!
