Super producer who worked with Jimi Hendrix on board for Belfast band Saint Sapphire's first album

Saint Sapphire has signed to Ghost Music

A BELFAST band has signed a record deal which will see its first album produced by the rock industry heavyweight behind hits by Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, Santana and the Ramones.

Saint Sapphire has signed to Ghost Music, a hybrid record label which is a partnership between US sports fitness brand Ghost Wellness and Sony Music's Orchard distribution network.

This will see the band's image and QR code on the side of water bottles, which are scanned to take the drinker to a series of pages such as Spotify where they can find out more about them.

The three-piece, featuring frontman, guitarist and primary songwriter Sam Morgan, drummer Adam Walker and lead guitarist Danny Martin, are an indie-rock/punk fusion.

Super producer Glen Kolotkin - who mixed Hendrix's `Electric Ladyland', engineered on `Satanic Majesties' for the Stones and produced Journey's first three albums - is at the helm for their first offering.

Their latest single and video launch has premiered on around 14 different streaming and TV platforms including Amazon and Apple.
