The Ground Pilots are filmmakers and artists based in London. . They chose Supertone to lay tracks for their second album The Race, A Magical Boy, The Film.


They shot an amazing video diary of their session, evoking a sense of travelling to Spain, wandering around Estivella playing an acoustic guitar and recording in the studio; which also involved Simon getting down on his knees with his trusty Flying V and Suzy recording bass guitar for the title track!

Simon Campbell also played guitar on the critically acclaimed debut album, In the Way Of Oceans. He loved working with the guys; they gave him total freedom to do what he believed the track needed and the relationship really worked.

Ground Pilots said:

"What an exhilarating and productive experience it was for Ground Pilots to fly over to Valencia Spain and work the incredibly talented duo Simon Campbell & Suzy Starlite-Campbell on our 2nd album "The Race - A Magical Boy - the Film".

The studio set up is a musicians dream with everything you require at hand including a Trident Vector mixing desk plus an array of ultra superb guitars & microphones to ensure the sound quality of everything you do at Supertone Records is the best it could possibly be.

Soon as we arrived we felt at home as Simon & Suzy made us feel so welcome straight away as they're such kind and attentive people.

Day one was a great bonding session for us all as we discussed about the weekend recording we had ahead, also visiting their local town and even having a little dance to a band parade in the streets before heading back to the residential studios and having a swim in the pool and listening to Abbey Road on Vinyl in a thunderstorm - a moment i'll never forget.

When it was time to hit the studio, it was time to hit the studio in a big way full of excitement and enthusiasm, Simon was mind blowing with his knowledge of tech and his playability once he picked up a guitar made me feel like I was in guitar heaven setting his amplification to 10 making Jimi Hendrix blush, Suzy on equal measure playing her bass so expressively and on point was simply a joy to behold.

These guys know exactly what they're doing creatively and I'm so pleased to have had the chance to work with them both. a magical experience to say the least !!!
