Here are a few photos from this weekend’s sessions with the Jamie Roe Band – recording with Lee Jacobs at Tide’s Reach Studio on the east coast, working on our first set of studio tracks for the new project.

Well, I’m finally able to announce that the long-awaited debut Witchers album will be released on Monday 11th May 2015 – and we will be playing a headline show at The Waterfront Studio in Norwich to celebrate the album’s release on Thursday 7th May 2015.
It will be three years since we began work on the album, and almost two years since we last played live, so we’re very excited about getting on stage again and playing our music for you all!
I hope to see lots of you there on 7th May to celebrate the launch of the album with us – tickets are available from any of the band members, or online.
This term starts on Monday 5th January, and finishes on Friday 27th March.
Half-term is the week of Monday 16th February.
There are no lessons on Monday 2nd March after half-past-seven.
There are no lessons on Friday 27th February or Friday 27th March.
As ever, check back on this page regularly for any new information regarding your lessons. Any lessons cancelled or postponed by me will be rearranged on a different date, and I will discuss this with you in your lesson.
As you may have noticed, Witchers have been on something of a ‘hiatus’ lately. We’ve been through a couple of line-up changes, and various of the band members’ personal lives have taken priority recently. However, out long-awaited self-titled album Witchers will be finally be released this year, in May – after three years of work! – and tomorrow you will have an opportunity to listen to Undivided, one of the tracks from the album, on Soundcloud for the very first time.
Personally, I’m extremely proud of my involvement with Witchers and my playing on this album; it’s been a long time coming, but I can’t wait for people to hear the fruits of all our hard work!
The idea is that, as we get closer to the release date there will be some live shows (our first live appearances since Cambridge Rock Festival in August 2013!) to promote the album, and to get people talking about Witchers again. I will be able to reveal more about these shows, and more about the record in general and its release, nearer the time.
