About The Hurt Myself Project
It was all the way back in March 2004 and we had just completed working on the Downtown remixes. It was a great time for the Blue Pie Records production team.
With the help of Tony Hatch and the great testimonial that he provided the company for the great work that we completed, we were introduced to Rusty Anderson who was then the resident guitarist with the Sir Paul McCartney Band. In 2001, Rusty Anderson, along with drummer Abe Laboriel Jr., got a call from producers Mo Jackson and David Kahne to play and sing on Paul McCartney's studio album Driving Rain. This became the birth of McCartney's widely praised band, which Variety called "as tight a unit as they come".
Rusty had his album out called "Undressing Underwater". After a phone call to Rusty and again with huge thanks to Tony Hatch for the connection, we sent over some of the past remix work we had completed and Rusty then granted us permission to work on any tracks we felt could work.
We chose "Hurt Myself" as it had a stellar cast and the quirky cool song called "Coming Down".
Once the song selections were done, next was a quick phone call to Dino Jag who had been working on the She's a MOD project with the Blue Pie Production Team, and a call to Richie Robinson who is a great friend of Dino's and Blue Pie's Mr Colin Seeger.
It took about 30 days for us to get the remixes turned around and mastered and Rusty was extremely complimentary to the team and remix work, so much so that he totally got behind the songs and pushed them as much as he could. A few weeks later some interviews were organised ( You can listen to these here on Soundcloud ) and we then set out to get these songs out to the global radio waves.
It's now 2019 and the songs are constantly finding new fans all over the world with the help of all the new streaming services like Spotify, Amazon Music and iTunes. With Spotify showing the stream counts we are now at over 75,000 streams on the remixed tracks and growing, and I know this is just the beginning, as these songs go about finding new ears to engage with. These are some great earworms that are now taking on new life, and all thanks to streaming.
This website is a testament to a very dedicated team at Blue Pie Records, and the media and production teams that worked tirelessly to make this all come together.
