I just wanted to send a message over to say how great it was that you did the video masterclasses over lockdown. Secondly over the past two days I've been with Ryan, at RML Studios in Wolverhampton. Ryan is absolutely incredible to work with. I cannot stress that enough! Not only as a studio engineer, but also as a producer to help bring out the best in your songs. He's honestly one of the best people I've had the pleasure to work with in the music industry. During these strange and difficult times I feel that It's more important than ever that good news is shared! I hope that this feedback further reinforces what great work you are all doing.

I’m having a great time with the masterclasses and today’s (song lab) was really good. I hope we can have more like that! The MAS course is truly inspirational and has opened so many new possibilities for me. It’s been a wonderful experience so far!
