Well what a year it has been for Taupo singer / songwriter Jayme Fitzgerald. First of all she reaches
the final six in the Smokefree Rockquest 2008 and now she has released her
first single from her upcoming album.
The track is called “Water” and is a great number which hopefully will be
heard on radio very shortly. A
sample of the track can be found on our Sample page for you to enjoy.
Meanwhile we are continuing with the remainder of the album
which is due for release early in 2009.
Watch this space !!
The Mellow Drops from Tauranga recently recorded a demo with us called "Nurture".

Great Lake Music Fest
In March of 2004 we spent a day recording a live show put
on at the property of Peter and Sarah Foreman in Taupo. This event
involved eleven different acts ranging from classical vocal to jazz to
light rock and was an awesome day of music, sun and fun. Lakeside
Recording Studio has just released a four CD set from this occasion and it
is a must for local music lovers (and music lovers everywhere). You
can order a copy of this CD set by contacting us

Late in 2004 we finished a ten track CD from Nitelife, a
local sequenced band featuring Ray Channing and Alison Flavell. A
sample of a track can be found on our Samples
page. While this CD was done purely for the benefit of Ray and Ali
I'm sure they would love to know what you all think. Please let us
Recent projects include a second CD from the local all
female unit "Kilkenny Kats" featuring some of Taupo's most
talented musicians. Listen to the Sample
from their first CD on our Samples page. Amazing stuff! Note
that The Kats are planning A CD launch concert in October 2007. In
fact I think I may have some involvement in that - I had better polish up
the old bass... More information closer to the time.
In 2006 we recorded some tracks from local heavy metallers
"Necroternal". These guys simply blew me away with their
dedication, knowledge and musical ability. I believe they have had
some airplay on "The Axe Attack" show with Paul Martin, Sunday
evenings on The Rock. They certainly deserve it so if you are into
this style of music look out for them. Check them out on our Samples page. Also check out their web site www.necroternal.com.
During the Winter of
2006 we had the pleasure of Albert Groot in the studio laying down some
vocal tracks for a new album. Some of you may remember Albert from
his Elvis show in Taupo's Great Lake Centre a few years ago. I
remember it well as I was one of the backing musicians for the show.
Well it took me a long time to get Albert here to record and it's taking me
nearly as long to mix the tracks down. However we are nearly there
and are hopeful to have a CD out in late 2007. You may think you have
heard some great Elvis impersonators but you ain't heard nothing until you
This is definitely
something to look forward to and is worth every minute of the wait.
