Running a label and receiving recognition with our endeavour has been quite a job, but I’ve also been able to keep the space to write my own music, record and play live as I have always done with my previous music projects.
“in recent years I have learned a lot about the business and of course I will release my record on my own label… I will continue to make the music that I need to make in order to enjoy life. I’m releasing it simply in the hope that others will have as much fun with it as I have.”
