December 10th Challenge COMPLETE!


After 3 months since I announced this songwriting challenge, we are finally done! I asked my good friend Johnny Geib to help provide a place for all the song submissions to be posted for us all to share in and be encouraged by.  You can go HERE to check out the songs.


So, what was this challenge?

The challenge was to write, record, mix and master a song, or set of songs, to be released on December 10th. This date was arbitrarily chosen to give us all a deadline to aim for. When you release your song, or set of songs, participants were to post a link to the song(s) in an agreed place.  On the day itself, we had over a dozen submissions, but we are still receiving late entries. 


This is not a challenge that I set and let run its course. No, I’d never do that! I wrote my own song and released it on December 10th as part of this challenge. Click the cover art below to go check it out on Soundcloud! By the way, if you really like the song, you can buy it (along with some other records of mine, if you like!) from my NimbitMusic page HERE.


If you’d still like to take part belatedly in this challenge, please do email me via the contact page. Don’t worry, there will be other challenges, as I intend to make challenges a regular feature for 2019!

All moved in!


After almost 14 days, we are moved in to our new home and are mostly unpacked now. The Studio is all set up and running wonderfully well, our new fibre broadband is installed and running a glorious 20 times faster than our previous internet! Here’s what the studio looks like now, in it’s new room:

 As you can see: it’s MASSIVELY bigger than before!! having all this room means that tracking in the studio will be a lot more comfortable for both artists and me.

Last night, with the help of my good friend Johnny Geib from homestudiotrainer.com, we were able to get my livestream quality dramatically improved, now that I have so much more upload speed. so, a huge thank you must go to him.

So, before us we have an exciting new period in the development of the studio as a business and some fantastic new ways in which I can serve YOU, my readers, subscribers, clients and friends. Can’t wait to get stuck in!


Here’s to making MORE music, BETTER music and having WAY more fun in the process!


Moving On Out!


Today, I began packing down the studio, ready for Move Day tomorrow. I have been in this small room for 6 years, and I have really gotten used to it! I am excited to be moving to a new home, with a new studio space, but it is the end of an era. I am very thankful for all the ways my studio business has grown in the last 6 years, and I am very excited about the future ways in which it will grow! I have some very cool and exciting plans ahead for you all.

So, I am documenting the move, and giving you a first look at my new room and how I am going to acoustically treat it and set up my gear; and also how I will over come some inherent acoustic problems in the room. Stay tuned to my facebook page HERE, and my YouTube channel HERE, where I will be documenting everything with photos and occasional livestreams.

Exciting Announcement!


Friday night, I will be the featured Artist on Tony Hall’s “Memory Lane” Show on GrooveCityFX Radio station at 8pm EST. Tony will be interviewing me and he will be playing some of my most recent releases. Check it out!
