2014 Wrap-up

Wow.  What a year.  I feel as though I say the line “This year has been the biggest yet!” every single time, but the truth is the last few years have been one constant staircase of project size and scale. Here’s some of my favourite parts of 2014, and a couple of the things I can…

Project updates and new audio link

Hey guys, It occurred to me the other day that I hadn’t actually posted here recently, so here’s some news! 36 Questions is coming along nicely.  A couple of festival submission options have changed, so we’ve been given a little more breathing room in production (woo!).  Justin, Danny (our new engineer) and I recently did…
