Greetings Louisabell,

Thanks for the kind words!

All the tracks are composed, performed and produced by myself, apart from "Unimind", "The Harvest" and "Sun To Man" which were co-written by a good friend of mine. 

I'm responsible for all the singing and lyrics.

I'm fortunate enough to be able to afford professional engineers and it's been a dream of mine to create a pro-quality album for over 20 years.

Congrats on realising your dream! Your music is very uplifting. I think my favourites are My Life and The Harvest. The samples of Carla and Don are brilliant. Maybe one day you can make a music video.  Smile

I've actually paid a professional director to make a music-video for the band!

He's Justin Kerrigan who amongst other films, wrote and directed "Human Traffic", so it should be decent enough. 

Obviously I needed to make the music first, so now that we've a good selection to choose from, the video will get made in the next couple of months.

I'll advise on the forums when the vid is up on YouTube.  

I'm also going to put up static / text vids of the rest of the album on YouTube when I suss out the necessary technical skills to do so.

Cheers.  Smile
Whoa Jom this is really complete work.. like Louisabell I particularly loved the Harvest, and Up Up an Away, and I love the graphics !!!
Greetings all,
