REVIEW 4/5 stars (MUZICNET)
17th May 2020 - New Zealand is now at Level 2 Lockdown, which means having a friend around. My good friend Matthew Redmond came over to say hello, and ended up helping remix the song 'Stonecutter' to give it more stereo width, space and air. Revised version now on Bandcamp.
12th May 2020 - read the review here by Corrine Rutherford (Muzic.net.nz). Also thanks to NZ Music Commission. On additional news, Louis from Ellamy Studios has been re-hired to mix this fifth and final song for our Lockdown Project. Plus we are looking into a 'special musical guest' for this song. I may have saved one of my personal fave tunes last for this project. Stay tuned.
