Also, congrats again to Tobias Cummings with the latest review for his album ‘A Trophy’, produced by Wez Prictor, Tobias & Tim Whitten, mixed by Wez, and mastered by Adam Dempsey for CD & 12″ vinyl LP:
“a fulfilling record that’s technically rounded and gorgeous in its delivery… its title indicative of the triumph that this record represents. It’s a good morning, a lullaby, a companion, a record to sit at the edge of your slipping consciousness… and a record you’re bound to fall for.” – Soulshine, Australian Independent Music.
