I’m delighted to announce that I’ve signed to Earth Academy Records.
I’m humbled to have been asked to join the label by it’s creator Keith Harvey. Keith, a.k.a Mirai – is one half of the duo Intelligensia with Bronwen Stephens. Mirai has a mountain of album, single and game music releases behind him.
Mirai has visited us several times in Japan over the last couple of years and has become a close family friend. To be honest, when he first suggested that I release some music on the label, I was taken aback. I’ve never really been that confident as an artist, which I guess is why I gravitated towards post-production work and education.
I wouldn’t say I’m a great believer in destiny, but meeting Mirai has had real significance for me. He has shown me a new door of opportunity to go through and given me no end of support. It’s taken a while for the message to sink in, but his positive outlook has made me something of a believer. Maybe, at 47 years old, I’m not quite ‘past it’ yet, and it isn’t too late to start releasing music.
Recently Mirai and I have been talking about collaborating on a few projects. He’s planning to move back to Japan in 2018, so, I can’t wait to see how all that develops. Watch this space!
