Tele Records with Prominent Producer

Posted on

Local rock act Tele has been impressing audiences across the country with its powerful live performances since it formed in 2003. The band recently caught the ear of three-time Grammy Award-winning record producer David Bottrill and headed to DNA Studios in Toronto to record.

Bottrill will be recording three new songs and potentially a follow-up full album with the band, which has put on showstoppers at JunoFest, North By Northeast, and Canadian Music Week. Bottrill has an amazing track record of diverse and successful artists. He began by working with Daniel Lanois (U2) at Grant Avenue Studios, working on Peter Gabriel's tremendously successful So, Us and Passion albums. With Gabriel he helped create Real World Studios, and went on to a wildly successful career as a producer recording seminal albums by Tool, Muse, Silverchair, Godsmack, Staind and many more.

"David Bottrill was at the very top of the band's wish-list of producers and they are over the moon to be in the studio with him," manager Glen Willows (who also works with Inward Eye) said in a press release. "I feel that he understands the band and will finally capture their sound in all its shadings, which up to now hasn't been done."

Tele, whose track "Choose" recently made it to the #1 spot on 92.9 Kick FM Top 40 Chart, returned from Toronto last week with plans to return to Toronto soon for further recording. In the meantime, local audiences have a chance to catch the band live on April 28 at Silverado's with Jet Set Satellite. Tele will help launch Kick FM's Homespun CD on May 5 with Quinzy and J.P. Hoe.
