Bluesy-soul revivalist Chich believes honestly relating to a song is the only way to truly connect with an audience. The Sydney born singer has been developing his soul infused songs alongside the reality of life and living…

Chich says “Technology for recorded music has never been so sophisticated, but I think we've forgotten something important along the way. Technology is great and can have an important role in creating music, but music isn't always about technical perfection. The wonderful soul records of the 60s and 70s were recorded live, sounded great and were perfect despite their imperfections. Our whole thing is that the truest music is recorded when the engineer sets the mics and just lets the tape roll, then we pick the best, most vibe-y take. Sure there might be mistakes, but fabricated perfection shouldn’t always be the goal, great sounding tracks where you can sense the feeling of the musicians in the room is what’s important to us.”

“I’m Alive” was recorded in the same manner as many of Chich’s favourite records, in a big room at Leichhardt’s Love Hz studios. With lush strings and whirling hammond, added to the four piece band, Chich let the project develop organically, just like his influences Bill Withers, Tim Buckley, Otis Redding, Donny Hathaway, and others had done in the 70s – getting back to translating the vibe of the music and the room to tape. A gutsy, soul drenched voice fused with dynamics to spare, Chich floats between rock ‘n’ soul to sweet sultry ballads.

The Album was recorded simply and live. Chich in the vocal booth with his guitar, and the rest of the crew set up in the main room. From the chart being handed out, to the raw finished product, each track took between 2 to 2.5 hours. They were then given a quick mix so we could have a listen. From there, we decided if any other layers were needed on the tracks, things like backing vocals, trumpets on “Sorry”, keys of some sort, percussion, or strings, to add some depth and colour. Then it was left to Michael Carpenter to do his magic with the mixing and mastering.

Lyrical cues are taken from observations, experiences and like all great soul music, relationships. On Chich's new record “I’m Alive”, he sings of love lost and gained on “Unrequited”, “Lover” and “Joy” and commentates on society, examining political, environmental and religious affairs with “Revolutionaries”, “Denim, denim”, “Chasing the moon” and “Coming home”. He shines a spotlight on depression and the struggles of life with “I’m Alive”, “Is it gone?” and ”Sorry” and then there's “Mistress”, a song about the hold women can have over men.
