I've been creating my own music this month, contributing to the Song-A-Day challenge where musicians write, record and share a tune on each day in February... stressful at times (when the day is running out!) but on the whole it's been a very enjoyable rewarding experience.. it's got me writing again and improved my ability to record demos of new ideas quick! There's a lot of great stuff on there from all styles of songwriting to experimental electronica - many produced to an incredible standard given the insane time constraints! Check them all out here my tunes are under MarkM also look out for my friends (and ex-Robots Found Errors bandmates) Esme D and ChrisLody.
If you're making music please get in touch we'd love to help promote your work.
We'd love to feature your album reviews on our website too, do get in touch if you'd like to give a thumbs up for one of your recent purchases.
Warm regards to all Mark
