The Beehouse song-writing and production team consists currently of two members:

Philip Lane (dance and progressive)   Jane Lane (pop styles and arrangement)              
 

Phil has the monopoly over more recent and futuristic styles, and has a passion for dance production and sampling, as well as an experimental and responsive attitude to customer needs. Major influences include the Beatles, Bjork, Kate Bush, and the array of producers who have developed and transformed the dance world over the past 30 years. Phil works form rhythm upwards to create the feel and drive the vocalist.

Jane bases song development on harmony and song construction in the first instance, and will set harmonies to virtually any melody line, working with the lyricist and singer to produce the desired effect through harmony first. She draws on a wild and heady mixture of resource and feels no compunction about mingling ideas from Nellie Furtado with Chopin, David Bowie or Die Prinzen, elements of Cockney Rebel and Radiohead along with Arabic, Greek and Turkish melody lines or running Chopinesque structures into Morisette-style clarity. Lyrics scan very tightly and rhymes are meticulously tailored.

Chris has a seriously involved commecial background in music, having played alongside formere members of ELO in the reformation group "Orkestra". He has a wealth of experience in production, and an instinctive ability to move a song from its initial "skinny" format to well-rounded classic ballad and pop, with sophisticated phrasing and multi-layered interaction between the various lines. He derives his inspiration from a wide range of artists, spanning the last fifty years, and creates rich, classic melody/harmonies from often quite skimpy beginnings, specialising in creating the chorus and "lift" elements instantly recognisable in both progressive and traditional pop.

Most visiting artists work with at least two members of the team, quite possibly all three. This makes for a more polished finished end product, and a better, more varied working environment.
