We're looking forward to running our Music Box Studio Experience - a residency for songwriters, bands, in fact anyone interested in making their own music! This year they not only have access to our fabulous studio in Mullingar where they can learn from great musicians and record their own song, but we are also bringing in a videographer and teaching them all about creating EPKs (that's an electronic press kit to you and me :) Follow their progress on FB
