New role!!


June 9, 2015

One of New Zealand’s most respected and experienced musicians, Wayne Bell has played pretty much everywhere with everyone in a career that started at 13 when he sneaked into a Northland pub to play drums in a covers band.

Probably the best drummer Warkworth has ever produced, Wayne is also a talented multi-instrumentalist who writes and performs his own material, scores for TV and film, and is in demand as a producer and arranger for many of the country’s top recording artists.

Wayne will be bringing his extensive knowledge and passion for great songs to Aeroplane in the new role of Creative Manager, where he will be advising on music choices across all of our projects. 

He will also be bringing a well developed sense of humour and a selection of unbelievable but true stories from 30 years of touring at home and overseas.

What's been going on at waynebellmusic and (the) anteroom?

Well, the year is certainly off to a good start!

Ad world is busy, busy busy!

Three radio ad campaigns completed and on air as well as a major TVC for Meadowfresh. Will post in the Advertising/ Television section first chance I get.

On the original music front I am working on pre-production for a new Greg Johnson album which I am producing in LA in April 2015. Greg is writing some fab tunes and I think sonically it's going to be a very interesting album. Have also just released the first single and video from Modern Chair. This cracking, fuzzy, pop rock anthem was recorded at (the) anteroom and beautifully mixed and mastered by Olly Harmer down the hallway at the Lab Studio. Up-coming releases recorded at (the) anteroom include Jan Hellriegel's new single For The Love Of Glory (co-written with Wayne Bell and Martin Brown), and the first single from my solo project, sadsmiles.

More album production projects include finishing the new Greg Fleming album (June completion) and a new Stretch and the Bootlegs album to be recorded in July.

All good fun!

Remember, drop me a line if you want to talk about any recording or production projects or, alternatively, pop in to the studio for a glass of plonk and a chat!
