Styles and Strengths
The Beehouse song-writing and production team consists currently of two members:
Phil has the monopoly over more recent and futuristic styles, and has
a passion for dance production and sampling, as well as an experimental
and responsive attitude to customer needs. Major influences include
the Beatles, Bjork, Kate Bush, and the array of producers who have developed
and transformed the dance world over the past 30 years. Phil works form
rhythm upwards to create the feel and drive the vocalist.
Chris has a seriously involved commecial background in music, having
played alongside formere members of ELO in the reformation group "Orkestra".
He has a wealth of experience in production, and an instinctive ability
to move a song from its initial "skinny" format to well-rounded
classic ballad and pop, with sophisticated phrasing and multi-layered
interaction between the various lines. He derives his inspiration from
a wide range of artists, spanning the last fifty years, and creates
rich, classic melody/harmonies from often quite skimpy beginnings, specialising
in creating the chorus and "lift" elements instantly recognisable
in both progressive and traditional pop.
