Whatever festival you may be celebrating between now and mid-January, we wish you and your family, friends and colleagues much joy, peace, health and great success.
We hope to see YOU next!
The albums and artists that sum up our year span genres and borders. We recorded hip-hop, blues, punk and rock, r’n’b and spoken words. We had opera singers and classical musicians as well as gospel and trap. We recorded on site and on location, we programmed and composed, mixed, mastered, edited, we sang, we tuned, we recorded frying bacon sizzling as your sound effect….
Our year started with Et Tu Bruce back in January 2014. They also stopped by for two weeks in December. 2014 almost started and finished with Et Tu Bruce. Old friends that feel at home with us. Our bonafides: Et Tu Bruce
We are proud of every and each one of you who trusted us with your music this 2014. We have worked with some of the world’s greatest artists and we cannot wait to start afresh in 2015.

We are finishing this year with Echochain, rest of the year is dedicated to recording their debut album.
This year, once again, we were part of developing voice recognition software for our clients in Japan and thank you to all who participated in ‘lending’ their voices to us. It WAS fun in the end, wasn’t it?
And yes, we were part of various film and TV shows, jingles and podcasts. Well…most of them we loved…
Expression ‘Job satisfaction’ became teary true with few very special projects:
BonaFideStudio recorded amazing song Build It – The Disfunkshunalz ft. The Vale Stude Fam.
The experience and children we will truly never forget. We teamed up with legend JENNIE BELLE STAR back in March 2014 and recorded a song for Teenage Cancer Trust that we hope will bring much needed funds to this amazing organisation. Not so long ago we recorded song about Malala, the girl from Pakistan who stood up to the Taliban. There wasn’t a dry eye in the studio during THIS recording session.
We pride ourselves on being part of our community supporting various local charities and organisations. Our charity of the year was again LCCCP Muswell Hill. They are doing great work with children and parents and we will continue to support them in 2015.
Shopping and employing locally and supporting local businesses and talents is our priority.
We work with Muswell Hill Sustainability Group, Red Desk VA, Muswell Hill Flyer, Muswell Hill Legal Advice,Beyond Social Buzz, PQA Muswell Hill, O’Neill’s and many more local bonafides making our beloved Muswell Hill even better place to live and work in. All together we gave birth to The Geisterfest, first of many to come….
‘The two most joyous times of the year are Christmas morning and the end of recording your album’.
So bottoms up our musos! May only good tunes follow you around in 2015!
Forgive, accept, play, embrace, cherish and love! Its easier than you think…
Deanna, Brian, Nathan, Ron, David, Dioqo, Jack, Michael, Renatas, Enrico and Tom
