Solver: In The Studio (2009)
Award-winning Newcastle rock trio Solver have a reputation for their tight, hard-rockin' live shows and hooky, melodic tunes. The band have been together since childhood, honing their skills as musicians and developing the electrifying chemistry and sibling vocal interplay that's made them beloved by fans throughout Australia.

In late 2008, Morgan, Tom and Cookie headed into the recording studio to lay down the cream of their song catalog. The band approached veteran rock producer Mark Opitz, whose work with Cold Chisel and INXS has made him a legend in the recording industry, to collaborate with them on the project. Excited by the songs and the dynamic trio, he quickly came on board, and the resulting EP is a raw, exciting collection of rock tunes that capture Solver at their best.

Seven Shells Media produced a making of featurette on the recording process, where the band takes you behind-the-scenes for an intimate look at the making of the EP, with interviews with the band and producer Mark Opitz.
