What's not to like? (That's not a trick question....)
Undercover filming! Sneaky glimpse in to a recent writing session.
At an after-show drink and chat I was delighted to learn that Jennifer is an even bigger Jeff Beck fan than I am. She was generous enough to demonstrate the fine points of some of his tremelo arm techniques, and shared great tips about her tapping approach. Not a style I normally use, but I've been practicing Jennifer, honest!

Coming in March next year: David Fee's excellent songs, and an instrumental album from Westhouse. We're looking to include some tasty extras as a thank you for everyone who buys direct from the Sondar Records site.
This doesn't leave much time for my own album, so Ampersand has been rescheduled for March 2017. Gonna be a party!

Well. I'll admit to one of mine, I've a soft spot for classic point and click computer games. The Gabriel Knight trilogy, Broken Sword - strong atmospheric stories and a captivating game world.
Very high on my list is a game called Dreamfall. So you can imagine how cool it was to discover two guys writing some fantastic instrumental music inspired by the worlds and characters from that game.
They go by the name Westhouse and their album will be released on Sondar Records some time next year. I've put on my producer and mix-engineer hats and I'm blown away by the tracks they're sending me.
Release date to be confirmed soon. I'll try to be the first to break the news!
