I have some 20+ audio ready files to begin the Earth Balm Bandcamp page. They are mastered at ACC levels ready for Bandcamp’s audio processing. I’ve almost finished the artwork for the cover of an EP of 5 tracks. They are not really representative of the majority of my tracks but they served as a quick and easy way in to give me the kick that I needed to start again.
More when the tracks are uploaded and ready.
Thanks for reading.
