GOT A MESSAGE FROM THE MASTERING ENGINEER – 10.8.2017
Debut album is being mastered and the message from the mastering engineer put a smile on our faces.
“I have downloaded your files. I have NEVER listened to a client’s work in its entirety prior to working on it simply because I’m too busy. But this time around, I listened to the first song and thought: “Wow, this is great”, then the next one, then the third one and so on and before I knew it I was listening to the full album front to back at once. Great album. Loving the singer and her amazing voice. Will make sure to give you some great sounding masters.”
