Let’s face it, everyone’s on Facebook these days, even my mum. I have to admit I’m a regular user myself. One of my favourite things about Facebook is the variety of communities you can find in the form of Facebook groups. In some cases I’ve created my own which have grown into great places to hang out, share stuff and discuss DIY Music related things. You may even have found my site via one of these groups.
For this article I’ve decided to share with you the main DIY Music groups as well as some of my favourites on Facebook for DIY musos like us.
Welcome to the second DIY Muso Spotlight. In this instalment we will be looking at the musical goings on of Michael O’Mara who I’ve know for a while now via the various online social groups we both belong to. Continue reading

In order to improve my game in programming and mixing drums for my own tracks I have been doing some research online to find out what advice is out there. My digging revealed a number of very interesting articles, which I’ll link to at the end of this. Here are the big tips I pulled out and will be sure to apply to my ongoing work. Continue reading

I’ve got a hell of a lot going on these days so time is tight, as you will know if you read my last post. But I’m doing my best to get as much done as possible. So let’s see how that’s going!

Hello all! As mentioned in my last post, I’ve got a lot on my plate at the moment. As it’s been a whole month since that post I thought I better get on and write another update. I’ve decided to keep the blogs to stuff about myself and my own musical journey, whilst publishing the studio and production guide type stuff separately as articles. So here is the latest on what I’m up to… Continue reading

It came so quickly I nearly missed it but this website is now just over a year old. The official ‘birthday’ would have been the 25th of April, last week.
