One of the UK’s hottest current songwriting teams, (famed for their work with chart sensation, Plan B, and including Ivor Novello Award winning, Cassell, AKA ‘The BeatMaker’), have confirmed they will be producing the British rock band, Swans In Flight, and their forthcoming commercial release due out Spring 2012. In the Producer’s chair at John Delf’s, Edge Studios, Cassell will be joined by Guild Award winning/fellow Plan B member, Eric Appapoulay.
“I recently got the chance to hear the song, ‘123’, taken from the Swans In Flight’s self-titled ‘acoustic’ album and liked what I heard. I shared it with the rest of my Sony Publishing/Plan B songwriting team and we all agreed this was something we really wanted to do. I’m excited to be involved with this band”, states Cassell who is also a member of, The Streets.
Swan’s In Flight studio alliance with Cassell and the Plan B team is set to produce a fascinating amalgam of styles and textures which will draw on both the classic and the new. Swans in Flight frontman, Hugo Montgomery-Swan, revealed that both he and Cassell share a common love for melody, “Above all, everyone loves a good tune and it doesn’t matter whether you’re talking Metal or Rap – everyone’s ears are tuned to the ‘hook’. Therefore, Cassell and I and all the guys involved in this project, will be going for the song every time...”
Swans In Flight are currently being booked to perform mainstage festival performances for 2012 plus a select number of theatre shows next March that will feature Metal Funk bassist, TM Stevens, (Joe Cocker, James Brown, Steve Vai), in the band’s line-up.
