Following the success of John ac Alun's recent CD, with over 1500 copies sold out before Xmas. There are a few more projects in development with Aran Records
- A new CD by Caernarfon Male Voice Choir is almost complete and celebrates 50 years since their establishment. This album features much lighter material than their previous release on Aran Records. Many of the songs feature bespoke backing tracks that were recorded at Stiwdio Aran, featuring an array of local session musicians. The choir's work was recorded at the magnificent Canolfan Ucheldre in Holyhead; a favourite location with it's very fine Steinway piano.
- A young local duo who perform acoustically have material in development that is scheduled for release in the Summer. More details soon.
Cyhoeddiadau Aran Publishing recently published material for several artists and also acted on behalf of some local tv companies, with whom Aran have an administration agreement. Please get in touch if you have any enquiries about registering your music for royalties.
ARAN Records launched a new 5 track EP by REBOWNDER (aka Iestyn Jones) on the 2nd of May 2014. It's his first release for a few years and marks a new direction in his life. This forms the basis of the lyrics for these songs, and as ever, he wears his heart on his sleeve! Recorded at the Machinerooms and Reel Time Recording in Cardiff, the tracks were produced by Richard Jackson and Meurig Hailstone, and the cover was designed by Osian Efnisien, in his own very distinctive style. All tracks published by ARAN publishing.
Following the successful release during September 2013 of 'Hwyl y Limrigau Newydd' as a book with an accompanying CD-ROM. The Welsh in Education Unit of the Department for Education and Skills commissioned Stiwdio ARAN and Gwasg Carreg Gwalch to produce this content as an ibook for the ipad. Additional material was recorded at Stiwdio ARAN, including readings of the limericks by Dewi Pws and Mari Gwilym. All authoring/programing was carried out in-house with additional graphics by Charlie Britton. This format allows all the interactive material to be placed alongside the text, and is sure to prove popular with schoolchildren when it is released in October of 2014.
