Future plans/projects

Would like to record songs that I have written and send these demos to labels for sale or signing purposes. Also record demos for others as a business recording studio. The road that does well is the one I'll take.

Comments

I love 60's, 70's and 80's music. General classic rock is my favorite. The Beatles and The Eagles are my idols in music writing and recording. The name of my studio is Keychange Recordings (copywrited). Would love to hear or give suggestions in this musical world we revolve in.
