The James Beaudreau Band is back at Shrine on July 27

Headed back for another installment of the year-long residency at SHRINE -- Thursday, July 27, at 7:00. No cover, good food, good folks, I daresay good music. We try our best! I've got Ben Kraus (bass) and Kyle McCarter (drums) with me, and we're breaking out some new tunes including the epic Grateful Dead triumerate Help on the Way > Slipknot > Franklin's tower. Hope to see you...

A minute from the Philip Lynch rehearsal of July 1

A very short clip from the July 1 Philip Lynch rehearsal. Yes, it's just a guitar solo. But I AM a guitarist, and we ARE supposed to have big egos. Anyway, this was a moment where, afterwards, even though it ended in a trainwreck, we thought we had done something cool. So here it is, a little preview of sorts of the July 6 Bronx gig.

Coming Soon...

A Workbench store, where you can get copies of our CDs and CDRs, and eventually, maybe, other stuff too. Fancy.

Workbench Recordings Website Relaunch

The titles says it all! Well, most of it. Workbench was founded in 2006, and trucked along for a while. It has been a netlabel, and also a label releasing physical objects, and then, for the last few years, it has just been sleeping.

What prompted the site's relaunch is the immanent release of two new albums: Philip Lynch's long-awaited debut album At the Start / At Long Last, and James Beaudreau's new album Stillpoint.
