We've recorded more than 120 different bands and artists, touching on all genres including punk! We've focused on original material so lots of our stuff is pure demo and cannot be published. More than 150 'originals' have been recorded, some of which - we believe - are world class!  Songs are emerging on CD so sample tracks are getting an airing as they appear! We've also started a 'production crusade' - picking the best and putting our own touch on them.  (If you are up for being a 'session musician' let us know via studio@ggh.co.uk). Here are some samples of our production work:
Chain, Chain, Chain
The Aretha classic sung by a group of jazz-minded musos who take pop standards and turn them into something new.  Called the Frisco Disco Fiasco they recorded several songs prior to a mini-gig in the JPS studio in 2019, in front of an invited audience of about 20.  Mini-gigs are ideal for this studio and the reception and subsequent feast that accompanies the gig seem to go down well with invitees.  Featuring Mike Westbrook regulars Marcus Vergette on stand-up bass, Jesse Molins on guitar, Martine Waltier on violin/vocals and Ric Byer on drums.
Ebby Vallance is a brilliant new talent writing very strong songs and singing them in a unique style. At 19 he's a star find for JPS and we think he'll make a big impression on live audiences in particular. Check out his first batch of recorded songs HERE
Who Are You? written and sung by HTower
HTower is a hidden Devon talent who's turned his hand to writing songs since attending a workshop led by Ray Davies (yes, that one!)  Ray specified the title early on the first day and asked each writer to bare their souls as an exercise.  This song turned out well so we offered to produce it.
JPS Sampler
Short clips from four songs recorded here at JPS.
1 and 4 are by the Marcus Vergette Frisco Disco Fiasco band who take modern pop songs
and jazz them up brilliantly. Recorded live as a Mini-Gig on front of a small audience, here in our studio!
2 is Ollie Holland singing a well-known folk song.
3 is John Foxen (generally considered as a 'folkie' but who handles a range of genres), with
a song called The Wrecker's Prayer.
Bring Your Love Home by Rob Love and Christy Rice.
A local pair who've been writing together for some time. This was our first significant session, done with
Rob as producer and multi-instrumentalist. We supported with production ideas.
Somebody Said by Laurie Lodge
Laurie said he'd like to have some of his demos produced 'properly'. This is the first one; others are in the pipeline. Nigel Wayne plays Sax and Shaun Smith is on Guitar. The Pippettes (Pippa, TraCee and Tanya) sing BVs - you can see them as they recorded this song, on the JPS Facebook page.
Dead Man's Pool by Biddy Mallabone
Biddy is a guitarist/vocalist who's written songs based on her mother's poems from years back.  Her CD "A Whisper in the Rushes" was produced here. This song is one of the tracks. It features her vocals and guitar with some musical additions to build the sound and the drama a little.  The link points to a video, also produced by Johns Park Studio.
Suo-Gan by Beth Seymour
Beth, a player of all four sax types (though not at the same time), needed to record six arrangements for her University finals. She sent midi files in advance and came so well-rehearsed that we did the business in rapid time. This is a song of celtic origins, with Beth playing Alto, Soprano, Tenor and Baritone (at the same time!).
