New album, 'The Innocent' masters now complete

Added on Thursday 12 Jan 2012

This is just a short note to mention that I finally got the masters for the new album yesterday. Whay hay! No more tinkering with mixes for me, the music is now set in stone and ready to copy to the final CDs.

Mastering was done by Barry Gardner (Safe And Sound Studios) who has worked with everyone from Ronnie Wood to Bela Fleck.

The next step is to get the CD design complete and the entire shebang sent off to the CD production company. Hopefully that will be done in the next couple of weeks.

Happy New Year - if I've not already mentioned it - have a great 2012.

All the best,
