SSR Manchester - Matt Alber records at SSR Manchester
Matt Alber records at SSR Manchester
We recently welcomed renowned singer and performer Matt Alber to SSR for a recording session in our DiGiCo studio.

Based in San Francisco, USA, Matt has previously released solo albums (inc Constant Crows and Hide Nothing), and toured all over the world.

Matt is also a former member of Chanticleer, a Grammy Award-Winning vocal ensemble that has been performing with various members since its inception in 1978.

SSR graduate Adam Stokel used our DiGiCo studio to record vocals and keyboards for a new track Matt is working on, a cover of Only If For A Night by Florence and The Machine which is potentially set for future release on his new album. The session came to fruition after SSR Vice Principal Ian Carmichael saw Matt performing in London earlier this year and invited him to SSR when he came to Manchester.

Matt has also invited Ian to collaborate on a remix package for his next single Tightrope, a track from his album Constant Crows.

Matt Alber:
“SSR has great studios! What an absolute pleasure it is to sing with one's whole voice, it’s the first time I could record with my full voice due to limitations of my home studio.”

Ian Carmichael:
“It’s a real honour to have such a unique talent as Matt Alber recording in SSR studios; he really has a remarkable voice. And it was my first time working with Adam Stokel who was the ultimate professional and made me very proud.”
