How to Build Your Own Pedalboard

As a guitarist one of the things you eventually get into is effects pedals. For many years I used the programmable multi effects units and never needed a board. I upgraded to start building a collection of the good reliable and hard working Boss Pedals. For a while I only ever used two, and so […]

David Crowder Band – Give Us Rest – Review

David Crowder Band – Give Us Rest (or A Requiem Mass In C [The Happiest of All Keys]) A long drawn out title for an album, but considering this is said to be their last studio album, I guess they can call it what ever they want. It is a 2 disc set, with both discs […]

iTunes: Get it to do what you want it to do.

So a while back now I was frustrated with iTunes. I was frustrated at it’s insistence to monopolise my music collection by organsing it for me, but without allowing me to choose just how it is organised. For instance, when I first started collecting my music in mp3 format, I decided that I wanted my […]

Studio Wall

I’ve finally decided to begin work on the mural for my studio. I wanted something classic, with a little bit of my own flavour. I knew I wanted that black and white rock portrait silhouette feel, and so I just had to come up with the musicians that have inspired me. Obviously Eric Clapton had to […]

Hillsong Live – God is Able: Review

The first time I listened through the album I was a tad disappointed. Usually there’s a bit of a guarantee that there’ll be a hit song on a Hillsong album. But nothing stood out. So I do what I usually do, and put the CD in my car. It’s now been in there for 3 […]

Haven Grove Studio

Welcome to Haven Grove Studio. The studio was set up by Al Ingham, in the spare room of his house. It is a place where the music can be played, the worship lifted up, and begin to be captured to share with others. The hunt has been on for a name for my music room […]

Mumford & Sons: Sigh No More – Review

This won’t be the first review ever written for Mumford & Sons, and there’s probably countless other website more reputable for music reviews than this, but these are my four cents worth anyway. Mumford & Sons definitely live up to their reputation. At the moment, they’re mostly known for their single “Little Lion Man” which appears on […]

Hugh Laurie: Let Them Talk – Review

This week I got Hugh Laurie’s new album “Let Them Talk”. Lets just say one thing. Magical. Having followed his masterful career in ‘House’ (which I’ve followed since Season 1), I have seen links to Laurie’s musical side, seeing a glorious Les Paul hanging on the wall in his apartment, and the occasional scene of House sitting […]

Switchfoot: Hello Hurricane – Review

Hello Hurricane is the 7th studio album by Switchfoot. And it’s a stunner. It delves into those rock roots of Switchfoot, as well as adding those mellow tones we’ve come to know and love. There are hints of Audio Adrenaline, All Star United as well as Wolfmother and Fall Out Boy all mixed into one. […]
