Impressions from my UK trip for Indie 101 in Manchester

Feedback from Indie 101

"Watching a master at work while he explains what he's doing and being able to hear the process through his ears was one of the best experiences I ever had during a recording workshop. Chris was very thorough and patient in explaining the process and any words we might not know. Very useful, also for home recording"
- Leonie (production student)

Snapd review and photos of the Be Creative CD Release Party at Hugh's room:

On October 9, at Hugh's Room on Dundas Street West, Chris Birkett and his six-piece band hosted their CD release party: Be Creative. The show was opened by former Jitter's lead singer/guitarist Blair Packham. Hugh’s Room was packed with Chris Birkett’s fans, who were in for a treat of a performance. The music was great and all the band members were highly creative.
