Drum tracks completed! Acoustic guitars and bass next. Exciting times!
Drum tracks are currently being recorded for the next album. A little soul, a little funk, a little Americana. All good things!
Top Rope Records Studio is complete!
Huge thanks to Andy Long for his assistance in making this happen.
Stay tuned for some recording taking place very, very soon!
Quick Top Rope Records Studio update!
