Still Here ep


This is a bit of a departure from the tracks we've previously produced, but is much closer to the feel and tone of our debut album Hard Times. Dark chocolate melodic tones coupled with rich orchestral overtures take you back to more mellow times, whilst Fahia & BJ's vocal lines invite you to reflect on what has passed. Evocative lyrics meet with deeper grooves.

'We're Right Here' aims to give hope when all around seems lost. Never underestimate the power of friends and family when you need them most. 'Forever Siempre' (sung in English and Spanish) takes the production a stage further with orchestration beautifully written & arranged by Jezz Wright, and the final track is an instrumental remix of a forthcoming album track 'This Was Our Time' - a nod back to our early formative twenty somethings when, we might not have had a penny to our name, but never stopped us from having some seriously good times.

Written and recorded over a period of two years, this ep (like most of our work) has taken a long time to see the light of day. It was really important for us to get exactly 'that sound' we were looking for. We wanted it to be distinctive, more expressive and dynamic that the 'current' sound that's just about everywhere at the moment. Constantly touring studios at the weekend it looked like we'd never achieve that mix we were looking for.  In the end, on one wet and rainy Sunday afternoon, locked away in his home studio with his trusted Apple Mac... Jezz produced the mixes that this ep really needed.

"Fahia's vocal arrangement, sung in both Spanish and English, adds a certain melancholic and poignant feel to 'Forever Siempre'  She really nails the simplicity of the message which can't fail to bring an emotional response". Paul Simon (BeatHype)

CellarHouse formed in 2019 and have spent the last two years in and out of their home studios recording their debut album, Hard Times. The band has a unique sound that's dark, moving and incredibly thought-provoking. The current line-up features an international cast of like-minded creatives.
