I hope everyone out there in Blogistan had a wonderful Christmas, full of good music and good cheer!

Tomorrow (and the next!) brings Sam Byrd back to Heeltop Home Studio for more recording. I've got some interesting ideas brewing which I can't wait to try out. It's going to be very different from Cosmologies or Indeterminate. Stay tuned for more details.

In the meantime, have a Happy New Year - I'll see you in 2015!
