Niall Teague and The Fast Company Album

By Niall Teague


This project will support the completion of a new album by Niall Teague and The Fast Company.

Work began in January 2016 with well known Galway sound engineer Ed Kenehan. The recording includes songs and music with Irish and American folk music influences. I am using crowdfunding to support the final recording sessions. It will also support mixing, editing and mastering costs as well as the production of the finished CD. 


In order to achieve the best possible result with these recordings I would like to mix the tracks in a professional recording studio such as Greenfields in County Galway. For mastering I have approached Iain Hutchinson famed for his work on the BBC’s Transatlantic Sessions. This progamme and its music are a big influence on the album.


Supporters of this project will be kept informed of advances in the new album via social media as well as a dedicated page on the Bands website www.niallteagueandthefastcompany.com.

I am a full time professional musician, and lucky to be so. It is my ambition to use my position to the best of my ability and to always endeavour to create new and interesting music and song. I have recorded and had successful airplay throughout Ireland and the UK and have embarked on several successful tours. The Fast Company group has an emphasis on good songwriting and musical arrangement with broad musical influences from Planxty to The Band. Our music continues to develop with the many styles present in today's Irish folk music scene.

If successful funds will be used for the following:
Mixing at Green Fields Recording Studio 
Mastering by Iain Hutchinson of Glowworm Studios 
Sound Engineers Fee for final recording sessions and editing/mixing
Musicians fees 
CD Art work and Graphic design

Total 3500

I have recorded and been involved in the recording of several albums and feel I have gained experience which will help in overcoming any issues in completing this project. In bringing the album so far I have shown that I am capable of successfully managing a project such as this and I look forward to sharing this new music.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my project I greatly appreciate your time and support.

Niall Teague

The album has been submitted to cd baby for digital distrubution today. Il be emailing you individually for postal information. Thanks again for your support with this recording, I really appreciate it!!.


Hi everyone,


Just a message to keep you informed about whats happening with the album.


It was sent for mastering last month.  I was sent a copy of the finished songs, but I felt that a few things could be improved a little so I'm having it reviewed. I'm currently waiting on the finished product being sent back to me again.  I'm now looking at January as a release time.

Sorry for the hold up, I just want to get it right :).

Thanks for your support and patience as always. I appreciate it.


Kind Regards



Album Mixed and ready for mastering

Hi everyone,

Last week the album mixing was finished, the album will be mastered the week beginning the 6th of November by Iain Hutchinson at Glowworm studios in Glasgow when he is next available. On Monday I met with Athenry based artist Ted Turton who will be doing some art work for the album cover (Ted is known for some of his Galway arts festival posters :), A print of this art work will be posted as part of the rewards to some of you. The artwork and the mastered files should be ready around the same time in mid November. After sending for print the cds and posters will take up to 14 working days. Then I will be in a place to deliver rewards.  


Once again thanks so much for your support and patience. If anyone wants to contact me for any reason your more than welcome niallteague@gmail.com or 0877437737.

Kind Regards



Recording finished

Hi everyone and thanks for your continued patience. Since my last update I have had a very special guest record with me. Sharon Shannon recorded some wonderful accordion on one of the album tracks, Its fantastic to have Sharon involved. Paddy Kerr has also added some of his brilliant bodhran. Im meeting with sound engineer Ed Kenehan today to listen to the tracks and make sure nothing else needs to be looked at again or edited (we may need more cowbell). Will will then be doing our final mixes. Il be travelling to Cork this Thursday to perform one of the tracks from the new album at the Noel Brazil song competition as part of the Cork Folk Festival. Check out facebook for photos and more updates. https://www.facebook.com/niallteagueandthefastcompany/ Many Thanks Niall
