“ArtSound has provided unqualified support for all of my musical activities since I arrived in Canberra at the end of 2005. Whether it has been live radio interviews promoting our annual Blues Piano Night each November, or live-to-air broadcasts of band performances, or recording CDs of solo and band material in their magnificent studio, it has always been a pleasure to work with ArtSound’s dedicated, professional staff.”
