A MEMBER of Stourbridge music's A-list has turned producer to record a new EP with a talented teenage singer.

Dan Worton from Ned's Atomic Dustbin enlisted some old friends to work on The Foundation EP by 17-year-old Katie Collins.

As well as producing the four-track EP Dan played drums while former Wonder Stuff fiddle player Martin Bell also makes an appearance.

The EP's pedigree got another boost when top recording engineer Jessica Corcoran (Ned's, Shed Seven and Power of Dreams) joined Dan to work on the mix.

Katie Collins said: "Working on this EP has been such a brilliant experience. I've learned a hell of a lot, I had an amazing four days recording in London with some of the funniest, most hard working people you'll ever meet."

The Foundation EP will be released on Monday May 28 and will be available in CD format or to download via the usual online stores.

She will on stage supporting Lucy Rose at The Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton on Thursday May 24 and at the EP's launch party at The Harp in Albrighton on Saturday May 26.
