Hello/Goodbye….

What can I say?

At the risk of sounding cliche’d, it’s been an incredible time here at bootcamp. It’s weird to think someone has to win in the end. I feel like we’re at a festival or something. It doesn’t feel like a competition at all. Highlights for me have been all the showcases and definitely recording with Russ Broom. He knew our sound and integrated it perfectly with JP. I personally couldn’t be more happy with the song especially considering what short time we had to record and write it. JP and his band were a great collaborator and things just flowed from the first note. The Nimbus crew have also been awesome. Shout out to Connor who was the assistant on our session. Pure beauty.

I was warned before I came that sleep would become a luxury and that’s 1000% true. But it’s also a bit of a choice. We all just want to hang out even when we’re not “working”. I’m inspired, not just by the lessons etc. but by every other artist. What we’ve learnt from the faculty has been invaluable and beyond my expectations. I’ve been reminded that the music business is not for slouches! Hard work and dedication is what it takes to make it on both sides ( the art and business ). I’m inspired to keep learning, working and practising my craft.
