It is very easy to hear the pop influence of Fran Ashcroft. “We are at the point now where we are adding bonus tracks and creating versions of certain songs for the radio pools,” says Sunset Records head, Don Lichterman. “This is one of those projects where you just let them go off in the studio,” Lichterman continues to say, “the band cannot be in any better hands as far as working with a producer, engineer and at the Happy Beat Facility.”

(Fran) Ashcroft’s producer and engineer credits not only include pop superstars The Dandy Warhols, the Gorillaz and The Kingsman, he has worked at the top recording studios all over the world that include Abbey Road Studios, Trident Studios (for EMI), Robert Lang Studios and Birdland Studios.
