Recording with Glenn Hughes and Chad Smith in Copenhagen

Well I just got back from spending 2 and half weeks in Copenhagen Denmark recording with Glenn Hughes on his first solo album in 8 years. What an amazing time. A time I’ll never forget :-) Myself, Glenn, guitarist Soren Anderson, drummer Pontus Englebert and special guest Chad Smith really worked in some kind of cosmic harmony and produced what I think will be one of Glenn’s best albums.

My rig was a great Hammond B2 with the TREK 2 percussion and reverb installed. We ran it through a beautiful Leslie 251 and also a Marshall combo for the nasty distorted and in your face organ sounds. Lots of organ and organ solos. I also used an original Mellotron with the Flute/Strings/Cello tape installed. WOW!!! That was a serious treat. We tripled tracked every mellotron part and it sounds simply gorgeous. I also flew my Hohner D6 Castlebar Whammy Clavinet over and it got used an absolute heap. In the tracks it doubles a lot of the guitar parts and riffs. There’s also a solo in there. I reckon most people will not even realise its a clavinet. But I reckon you guys will recognise it :-)

Getting to play with Chad smith was an honour. He seriously came in and pumped us full of energy and vibe which was perfect for the tracks we recorded with him. Then I got to ride with him to Roskilde festival where he was playing with he Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Got the serious VIP treatment that night.
Lastly it was a dream to record this album with Glenn. He really understood me and what I do and wanted all of that on the album. His songwriting, singing and bass playing on this album is simply incredible and I reckon it should do really well I already miss the guys but it’s great to be back home with the family. I’ll see them all again when we tour the album in Europe Nov/Dec.

LACHY DOLEY – BIOGRAPHY

“The greatest living keyboard player in the world today” – GLENN HUGHES (Deep Purple)

Lachy Doley is Australia’s most celebrated Blues Soul Rock Organ Player. He’s been dubbed the Jimi Hendrix of the Hammond Organ, a player who can pump, pamper and occasionally pound the most unbelievable sounds from a keyboard: sounds that are intense, ferocious and sometimes transcendent.

At 1.6 MILLION views, Lachy’s version of USE ME is just one of his viral videos setting the world on fire.

Lachy Doley has seen much of the world, recording and touring with acts as diverse as Powderfinger, Glenn Hughes, Steve Vai, Jimmy Barnes, The Beautiful Girls – more recently recording on a new album of Joe Bonamassa’s which came out in early 2015. It was 2010 though, that saw the birth of THE LACHY DOLEY GROUP and they have been heavily recording and touring ever since.

The group’s last album CONVICTION has taken Doley onto the world stage reaching #5 on the UK Blues Broadcasters Charts, #1 on the Australian iTunes Blues Charts and #1 on the Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Charts. Along with the group’s 2 performances at the legendary BB Kings in Memphis in January, Doley has cemented himself as a world renowned Blues and Soul Artist

The Lachy Doley Group are a unique sound in the classic and sometimes very traditional genre of the Blues. A power trio consisting of Bass, Drums and of course Doley firing on the Hammond, his vocal screaming from the heart and the incredibly rare Hohner D6 Whammy Clavinet in which most people double take on when they realise that sound isn’t an electric guitar but a 70 stringed keyboard with a huge Whammy Bar sticking out the guts of it.

The Lachy Doley Group have played over 200 shows and festivals around Australia since the first release in 2011 including Queenscliff Music Festival, Mojo Burning Festival, Rock In The Vines Festival, PEAK Perisher Festival, Echuca Blues, Noosa Jazz, Mitchel Creek Rock&Blues and were the stand out hit at the Gold Coast’s Blues On Broadbeach Festival for the last 3 years running.

“If music storms existed on this planet, it might as well be Lachy Doley’s vocals and fiery instrumental performances you hear pulsating from cloud to cloud amidst flashes of lighting and claps of thunder” HEIDI LEIGH AXTON – Rhythms Magazine
