  1. Steve in Australia

    2 composers have absolutely blown my mind in the last year or so. 1 is Keiichi Okabe and the other is Kevin. You guys have inspired me to study music myself as i have always wanted to but just never taken the plunge. Thank you so much for the music you guys. PS what is it about Perth and really good musicians!?

  2. Thanks Steve – Kevin is a bit special isn’t he? And a lovely fellow to boot.
