Recorded at Parr Street Studios, Liverpool in 2012, Starling’s second album Dream Again was released in June 2015. As with their debut, Public Service, I worked closely with the band to transform their template string sounds into dynamic, full-bodied parts for live musicians. The recording features 12 brand new songs with the strings of the Liverpool Session Orchestra providing everything from anthemic drive to reflective poignancy.
