New album out today from Julia Spitale!

Today is a unique day, and I’d like to share something special of a good friend of mine. North Vancouverite, Julia Spitale, just released a new 5 song EP/album today, and I wanted to post it here for you to listen to (Click here, or on the album cover below and scroll down once on her site).

I had the pleasure of producing this project with Julia (titled Good Again), and it’s the first time I’ve recorded another artist this way.  Julia is a lovely writer with powerful messages in her songs about mental health, overcoming grief, and holding strong through difficult times with the people we love.  Sit down, get cozy, and have a good take it in session with these 5 songs.  Enjoy, and happy to hear any thoughts or feelings on this.

*This whole album was completed at the Vancouver Public Library Inspiration Lab, and was a delight to work on!  For those who are unaware, the downtown library in Vancouver has studios you can utilize to record music, video, podcasts, as well as a variety of amazing multi-media production equipment.  They offer wicked courses for free, and is a fantastic resource.  I took a 4 week Documentary Film Making course in March with award winning film producer, Julia Ivanova, and I learned so much!

Check out Julia’s songs, check out the library, live long, and do fun things with good people :).
