About

All of my studio quality recordings are available at http://reverbnation.com/jonathanblackshire . I try to update my feed frequently with demos, song sketches, and ideas that I'm working on. Not all of it is pretty, but I enjoy sharing the creative process with anyone who wishes to listen. Thanks for your support!

    @Jer - AUS - Official: There's not much to remaster. Both the guitar and vocals were recorded onto one track. I do have the original track from before I added effects and equalization.
