"London's recording studios contain superslick players who not only take a worthy jazz solo but also sight read anything. Take Mitch Dalton, Britain's answer to LA guitar-tsars...they strike a nimble groove and demonstrate the right way to re-harmonise standards."

Evening Standard (Jack Massarik)

Guitarist Mitch Dalton has enjoyed a highly successful career as one of the UK's most in demand studio musicians. In recording his CD "Meet Mitch Dalton & The Studio Kings", he's drawn on this wide experience to present an eclectic mix of original and often funky tunes together with "genetically modified" standards drawn from The Great American Songbook. The unifying themes of the album are the fundamental elements that underpin his band's musical philosophy - melody and groove.

This eclectic approach is not coincidental as Mitch's complete musical credits are as extensive as they are diverse and include hit singles and albums (Robbie Williams, Alison Moyet, Marc Almond and even Monty Python!), movie soundtracks ("Twilight", "Chicago", "My Week With Marilyn", The Bond movies, etc.), countless TV shows ("Doc Martin", "New Tricks", "Stars In Their Eyes", etc.) and hundreds of commercials. Along the way he has also worked with many of the world's most celebrated composers and arrangers - Nelson Riddle, Henry Mancini, Jerry Goldsmith, Randy Edelman, Carter Burwell, Michel Legrand and Elmer Bernstein, to name but a few.

Lance Ellington has become known as one of the UK’s most popular male vocalists.  Apart from recording and performing under his own name, his regular appearances on the BBC’s live series ' Strictly Come Dancing’ have endeared him to millions of UK dance and music fans. His charismatic style and sultry tones have entertained more than 30 million people all over the world.
