Hedreich Nichols

Soundcheck Studios

One Singer Under Many Groovy Hats

In addition to doing the endspurt boogie on her upcoming album, Hedreich has spent the month playing aunt, teacher, surrogate mom, godmom, drummer, nurse, as well as a host of other varied and interesting stuff. All that in a month having 3 vacation weeks! But the work is paying off. Fans will be glad to know that the sound coming out of Soundcheck studio is exceptional, a Hedreich you know but like you’ve heard her before. Hmmm, what does that mean? Welllll, buy the CD and find out! It’s due out about the time the first snowdrops push up through last of the the mountain snow. Oh, and if you’re in Basel on November 14th, stop by Tibiz. We’re trying to do the gig again–this time without police intervention!

Congratulations Das Office and Powerplay

Hedreich took a few hours off from music making to get an up close and personal look at the new Powerplay studios. After a soft renovation, Powerplay presented it’s new look to a host of singers, musicians, producers and Swiss music business elite. The staff at Powerplay and Das Office combined powers to create an event that only Claudia Boggio could have masterminded; Studio 1 converted to an intimate club with some of Switerland’s hottest new bands playing, the reception area converted to a bar, and a HUGE grill and salad buffet…altogether they created a fine evening of music and magic befitting the grande dame of the Swiss studios. Even “Mr. Powerplay” himself, Jürg Peterhans was on hand for the festivities. And of course, no musician can be around music and really be off duty. So if you see Hedreich and the Flash playing with a Cajon and shakers instead of a kit, you can trace it back to this evening!

Studio success

If you are a connoiseur of those cool vocal harmonies that make or break or song you can understand how much fun Hedreich had over the weekend. After putting down the sound with Gölä, Rachael and Corrinne on Friday, she inched her way over to Jeannot’s in Canton Zürich and got down to business on her own project. Saturday produced –who knows–maybe the first single?!! And it was goooood!
