Well, after playing several open mic events and a couple of local festivals, I was asked to perform on the acoustic stage at a record companies launch night.

A few weeks later the owner of the company Robert Harrison of Long Haired Music in Spilsby, Lincolnshire saw me in Lincoln and asked if he could record my playing. This would be great, but I could only perform original material. Well I had 4 songs that I have been playing on and off for some time but I had to get down to writing another 4 songs or tunes. Actually I was surprised that this was not the difficult bit. The problem was finding enough time to rehearse and learn the songs.

Rob invited me over to the studio for a pre recording meeting and I learnt that the recordings were to be put onto i-tunes.

So, the recording day came around and I found myself 'on the road' at 7 o'clock - in the morning - to Spilsby.

What an amazing set up at the studio. A beautiful room with so much equipment in the booth that the U S S Enterprise would look under equipped. After setting up came the awkward bits. Rob said the bass drum kick pedal was squeaking and the hi hat tambourine was producing a thud as my foot hit the floor. Lots of work with oil and gaffer tape meant we were ready to record and after one tune it was time for breakfast.

At about six o'clock - in the evening - all was recorded and I was shattered. Rob will be mixing the music as although each song was recorded 'live' all the instruments went through individual microphones.

All that is left is to decide on a name for the recording. Like an album name if you like and the order of the tracks and a photo' for the 'cover'
