Amy Wood News

August 24th, 2015

As many of you know, our own Amy Wood is always busy performing with many different artists, most recently Conway, Pony Boy and The Bulls.

However, her pet project is her duo, The Donnies The Amys, that recently was signed to Sony-Europe after posting 1 million plays on Spotify in a 6 month period! Amy and her partner, Donnie Logan, produced by John Would at Stanley Recordings, have been pumping out some of the best indie pop music ever and people are finally starting to take notice!

This fall they will travel to Amsterdam and perform at the London Calling Festival and then a gig at Paradiso, a club frequented by the likes of Prince and The Roots.

Hilary Williams, has been hard at work with our own producer, multi-instrumentalist/engineer John Would, on a new full length album that should be ready very soon. I have heard some of the tracks and I will just say that I got very amped up after hearing them.

Can't See The Floor album layout

The wait is over! After a decade iRa has finally released his second record, which we like very much ;-)

Produced by our in house main man John Would who worked his usual magic along with Amy Wood providing as always a solid yet tasteful foundation and newcomer Kelsey Wood an opera singer who moonlights in the pop world, iRa sings of life over the past decade or two with a wide range of songs and musical tastes.

John most recently engineered at Stanley Recordings the Grammy nominated Album of the Year by Fiona Apple, “The Idler Wheel…” Amy is currently touring as part of Fiona’s phenomenal band.

While our website is being updated with proper links you can purchase this work at: either CDBABY.com for the physical CD or mp3s or iTunes. Since there are many iRa’s in the music world (note to self when naming next band) it is best to type in “Can’t See the Floor” to find it directly.

New Studio Space!

November 23rd, 2010

A lot has been going on in the past year since our Stanley Recordings Showcase at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood. For one, there is no more Knitting Factory! But the biggest news is that Stanley Recordings has moved to Echo Park (near downtown LA.) Our new space is more intimate, dynamic, and suited to our style.  As you can imagine we have been busy constructing our new home, and look forward to breaking it in with some exciting new sounds. John Would is currently recording Fiona Apple with Charlie Drayton for her forthcoming release after a seven-year hiatus.  In the meantime please click on the above links to find out more about our artists, releases, and clients!
