J U L I E B Y R N E, our first resident, stayed with us during the may and june months of 2014. she worked on some new songs during her stay, one of which you can listen to here (imagine hearing this tune coming out of her room on a sunny spring afternoon. yeah, magical). julie also helped us rework the cafe menu, and worked with us behind the counter. so much love <3
J U A N W A U T E R S was here for nearly a month in oct/nov 2014. he recorded his new album, who me?, which releases 12 may 2015 via captured tracks. this was done in the studio next door, futureappletree studio 2 and our sound engineer, ian harris, recorded it. juan is one of the most genuine artists we have had the pleasure of crossing paths with, and he also taught us how people in uruguay drink yerba mate.
N E I L C A M P A U was our june 2015 resident. he set up a studio in our residency room where he wrote and recorded a his new album, which was released august 25 2015 and available FOR FREE via bandcamp (https://electricianmusic.bandcamp.com/album/what-i-dont-want). he performed this album live for us on july 2 2015, and it was fantastic. we are very honored to have been a part of this, and to add neil to our list of past residents. he is an inspiration for us and you should read building- his guide on hosting diy events. neil's projects include dodiy.org / punks & criminals / electrician / (ex)world history - check out all of these things, and support them if you are able to.
