I remember using the Atari on my first recordings - the process has actually changed very little today.

After almost 14 years in the cellar/dungeon/man-cave, NowLookHear studios are moving.
We will be closed for vocal/instrument recordings for many months while the new studio is being built, but editing/mixing/mastering will still be possible.
If you want a recording - YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS before the rest of the equipment is ripped out...

So, here it is: As promised the epic 'Jubilee Song' by Gaynor Gallant.
