In the Studio for LOVE ABOUNDS with David Darling (recording for Sri Ma)

As production on my new album “Love Abounds” was coming to a close, we had the sweetest suprise pleasure to have the amazing David Darling join us at my friend and label-mate Andrew McPherson’s studio The Monastereo, in Guelph, ON. It was an honour to have him here and the beauty that he added to the song is sublime. The files were sent off to Ben Leinbach in California and Ben added David’s magic to the track!
