One of the most frustrating aspects of the current situation, for us musicians, is the fact that we can’t get out and play to an audience at the moment. We’ve all got everything crossed that we’ll be back out there at some point this year, but until then, we’ve all got to be a bit more creative in trying to reach an audience.
We’ve been putting a lot of thought into it here at Farm Factory and have been busy during the past couple of months setting up our new online streaming gig service. We’re able to accommodate everything from solo acts to full band performances, all shot multi camera with a live mix that is fully integrated with a paywall / ticketing service.
After the stream you get a complete video performance and audio mix of your gig to use for getting yourself some actual gigs when we’re allowed out again! If it sounds like something that might tickle your fancy, head over to farmfactorystudios.com for more info on the services we offer.

GREAT STUDIOS AND STAFFMaurice Hollingsworth
Just a quick note to say how much Chris enjoyed his session last night, with particular thanks to Dave for putting him at ease on his first visit to a studio.Roy Blyth
Thanks for the recording session you ran for my 16 year old son and his friends. The boys had a great time even though they struggle to show it due to their collective youth coolness! The results were not that bad for a 1st effort! Their mates have backed up my thinking that "Exhale" is the best bit of noise and they should try do more stuff along those lines. Thanks for your work getting them sorted, you earned every penny! I reckon and we will definitely be back!Simon Watson
