"We are currently in the final stages of post production of a new 5 track EP", he writes on his website. "I'm a bit excited about it! It was recorded at "The Base" in Melbourne back in September 2022 (with a few additional parts in my own home studio). It was produced by Jared Haschek (Compliments of Gus) and mixed by Phil Threlfall..who is a legend in sound craft!
In a unique first for me, the songs were recorded "live" with everyone playing together in the one room. This has produced a more "rockier" sound.
It also has real live strings on it. It sounds lush! I think all of the songs are very radio friendly."
