A: Send me an FB/text/email message ASAP so that someone else can have a chance to participate on short notice.
Have more questions? Email me at [email protected]
or FB message @HEADROOMLISTENINGSESSIONS and we’ll figure it out.
The event is open to anyone that wants to come, so encourage others and bring your studio partners….
This is your event, I simply organize it, so if you are a participating artist please take the time to invite your friends.
It's up to all of you to make this worthwhile and I hope the monthly sessions will become a part of your work flow!
Make more music and make it better at HEADROOM.
