ABOUT

Vocalist Required: A 30,000 WATT PA and RECORDING STUDIO AWAITS YOU. What are you waiting for? This is your chance!

We're willing to try any style of vocals. From Hard Rock, 80's Metal/Symphonic, to Classical, Folk, Celtic, Punk, to Disney (the cold never bothers us anyway).

But I guess we can rule out Country, or Death Metal cookie monsters, those styles aren't for us.

Please contact via Email: info@mrthud.com
Ideally attach a short recording of you singing (even just 1-2min taken on your phone is fine).

We are mostly focused on writing and recording music at our studio these days and less about live work (but depending on your preference that may change). Recording experience not essential.. you will get plenty of experience with us.

We generally meet up at the studio once every 2wks or so. Our studio is located near Lowood, so this may best suit a local from the Ipswich/Fernvale/Esk region. (But if you are traveling from further afield: We are 52min from Brisbane CBD, Or 45min from Toowoomba.. which is nothing if you are keen on music and playing with a great band (We actually had a member from Wellington point for about 1yr and a half.. so if you are genuinely keen on playing and recording then travel is a non issue).

Members Of Band

Musos:
Glen - Bass
Greg - Drums
Gerard ('G') - Guitar, Songwriter
Caroline - Vocals, Songwriter (Sadly leaving the band after this album release, due to her work commitments)

5th Member (You!?) - Separate to looking for a dedicated front person/lead vocalist, we would be very interested to try add a 5th member who plays Keys/Synth Or perhaps even strings; Cello, Violin. Or Ulliean pipes, to give some of our Celtic influenced material an extra dimension. Or, perhaps someone with good vocals and acoustic guitar.

EQUIPMENT

Our backline:
Eight Marshall 4x12 Cabs (two Guitar stacks, two Bass stacks)
Two ENGL Powerball Guitar amp heads,
Two Marshall DBS 400watt Bass amp heads.
Eight piece Pearl Double Bass kit (the studio 'black pearl').
Six Fold back Monitors powered by a 4 channel FP 10000 Q (up to 10,000 watts, but we run it at idle).

Front of House PA is:
Two FP 10000Q Power amps delivering a combined up to 20,000 Watts (Not driven beyond idle..).
Two Peavey SP218 SUBs
Two Peavey SP3 mains

*We typically run the overall PA at about 4,000 -5,000 watts total.

We have our own DMX Lights etc etc..
..and not forgetting our trusty 'THUD Van' :)

We also have our own recording studio.
A purpose built building, 12m x 9m with upstairs control room.
Equipped with a Soundcraft Series TWO 32channel analog console and plenty of retro outboard gear. Where possible we try steer way from computers, as people tend to mix 'visually' rather than what their ears tell them.. also modern recordings tend to remove the human element, use the same patches and ultimately sound much the same.. so, for us we choose: No DAWs/Pro tools, No Amp Simulators and certainly No Quantizers or Auto Tune... Just real amps, real vocals and acoustic drums driven hard into an analog console :)

Finally: For the off chance that a budding Keyboard player is reading this but finds transporting their gear problematic.. then fear not, as we have a Studio Keyboard Amp (Peavey KB 300watt) and two retro keyboards that are here for you to use.
