This project is cancelled due to a number of factors. Due to a potential loss from a recent wedding client we're making financial cutbacks. However, it's mainly due to the reality musicians have yet again proved that they can't be reliant on providing information regarding availability in an accurate or timely fashion, which does nothing to decrease risk factor.
The overall level of communication within the team hasn’t been sufficient to warrant the funds that the label is investing in this project and the high level of financial risk involved in booking expensive recordings/shoots. Therefore, we won’t be proceeding with the shoot for the foreseeable future.
The percussion recording will go ahead on the 30th as planned. Depending on its success, a separate shoot may be arranged for the percussion alone. For everyone else, they can consider themselves free from any obligation regarding this project and we will re-enquire as each necessary stage of the project is completed.
