OverdubsBy Toby May, on 02/09/2015

Hello!! I hope you all have spend a lovely Summer and really hope it was as good as mine!! The album is sounding better everyday as I am busy working on overdubs, recording vocals, glockenspiel, melodica and many other sounds, vocalists Jailyna Martinez, Anna Murphy, Kathrin de Boer and Deutsch Armelle have dropped beautiful backing vocals! My good Friend Mathias Kunzli is also busy recording amazing percussion in NYC and we will soon be moving onto the next step which is mixing!!! YEA!! Young photographer Romane Mayercourt popped into the studio the other day and took these shots! Take care, Toby
