Fay Hallam, a singer-songwriter and keyboardist originally from Wolverhampton, is a long time exponent of 60's style beat and pop, and has performed over the years in acts such as Makin' Time (which included a pre-The Charlatans Martin Blunt) to The Prime Movers, Phaze and The Fay Hallam Trinity. Over the years she has worked with Billy Childish, Graham Day, Alan Crockford and other luminaries of the Medway scene where she lived for 17 years. She has toured the UK and Europe extensively over the years, in one guise or another. A respected musician around the world and a prolific songwriter, she has made over 9 albums, the most recent of which was 'Lost In Sound' on Blow Up Records, a collaboration with recording artist Nasser Bouzida a.k.a. The Bongolian.
Both Fay and Nasser share a serious passion for 60's Hammond Beat and Soul. In the studio, they experimented with different sounds and rhythms, immersing themselves in the sounds they both love, including Bossa Nova, heavier 70's grooves and a strong Northern Soul influence. Their choice of instruments included old Rhodes, Wurlitzer and Hammond C3 keyboards and other vintage equipment, mixing things up with some cinematic synthesizer sounds, the end result being the critically acclaimed 'Lost In Sound'.
