Our musos love the chance to get away from the city and focus on making a sensational recording:
Just wanted to thank Paul at Smokestack Studios Gembrook. We got in there and smashed out four great songs…The guys have put together a great set up out in Gembrook and it was such a refreshing place to record, away from all the distractions of the inner city. Can’t wait to get back out there for future sessions with the band! James Leroy, Singer Songwriter
