DENIGH's Record Label - Since 2006
We are very proud to have our own record label, enabling complete control of our music, production and distribution.
DHR was pleased to give George at ONR records access to archive recordings, thereby enabling their release in 2023 of the DENIGH self titled CD.
DHR also gave licence to Chris Larson, exhibit designer and curator at the White Deer Land museum in Texas, to use our song 'Red River War' with the 150th anniversary display of the battles.
A real honour for us, thanks Chris.
Jons headless basses were hand built by a local luthier around 1990. They are fitted with Seymour Duncan active pickups.
He also uses a Steinberger 5 string bass with Aguilar active pickups & circuitry.
And for his vocals, Aston Origin & Shure microphones into a Yamaha 16 channel Digital Audio Workstation for recording.
Ian uses Telecaster, Stratocaster and Les Paul guitars plus classical and 'electro' acoustics.
Ians Keyboards / sequencers are Yamaha & Korg.
He uses Audio Technica microphones, recording onto two linked Yamaha 16 channel Digital Audio Workstations.
Something Carl is always asking!
But we are being good, we're working on the next DENIGH album, though there is a lot of work to do so we can't say when the release date will be.
(Its mostly Ian doing all the work, Jon's just messing about again!)
Anyway, most of the songs are new with at least a couple of old favourites to enjoy.
And yes, 'Meanstreak' will be there - but you knew that already coz its playing during our New Year Message.
In January 2021, via video call, Ian said he had an idea for a new song about the Bevin Boys - who are they?
Well, some of the young men called to service during WW2 were randomly selected to work in the coal mines to boost production. This was an initiative of Labour Minister Ernest Bevin and these 18 year olds became known as Bevin Boy's.
What Ian didn't know was that my dad was a Bevin Boy at Easington Pit, County Durham and, to a teenager from SE London, this posting wasn't what he expected.
In writing this we have imagined what it must have been like for these guys. The frustration and the fears, the hopes and the reality.
The history of the Bevin Boys is close to our hearts, not least because Jon’s dad was one of those conscripted.
So, we were honoured to have our song and video linked on a website dedicated to the Bevin Boys http://www.theforgottenconscript.co.uk/
The site contains a wealth of historical information, photos, and memorials. We highly recommend it. Thank you to writer and producer, Jaye Swift for linking us on her website.
I have been a music lover all of my life. I like many different styles and genres, but it is rock music that seems to draw me to it the most, whether it's Little Richard or Buddy Holly, Marc Bolan or David Bowie, Saxon or Simple Minds, or more recent bands like Those Damn Crows or Tribe Friday. For that reason and because I have known Jon for quite a long time, I was delighted to join Denigh as their social media manager initially, then later as the band's manager generally.
I can't play an instrument except, perhaps, to amuse myself playing the mouth organ or keeping time on a drum, but I do know great music when I hear it - DENIGH has got that by the bucket load, which is why I feel privileged to be part of it now.
The best thing of being in DENIGH is seeing and hearing the creative process develop into a fully fledged song that can be played and streamed around the world. The second best thing... well, no it's on an equal footing really, it is the friendship and fun we have as a group.
What do I bring to the band? As I said before, I do the social media. I produce the videos that have accompanied music releases, as well as promotional videos, which I think helps to get DENIGH noticed. The music world is vast and competitive, so no matter how good your songs might be, every little help is needed to gain exposure and to reach new listeners, especially for an independent band.
I deal with enquiries from fans and the media. Naturally, I discuss band related issues with Jon and Ian. In a way I suppose I'm also a sounding board when new songs are being crafted, so I can offer my thoughts and give feedback too. They even asked me do some spoken, vocal parts on a couple of songs for the
Back In The Game album, and it fills me with pride to have played a part in that, albeit only small.
In truth, I like performing. I used to be a regular on stage in local amateur dramatic groups and I have sung in musical plays and revues, but that's a different type of performance to the world of rock and roll. For now, I am more than happy to be creative in social media posts and by making videos, but if I get the chance to add some backing vocals here and there, then I am up for that too.
