Thanks for stopping by Liona Boyd

The other day I received an interesting e-mail from none other than Liona Boyd. She had been researching Melodyne and had come accross one of my blog entries. This was a very exciting moment for me as I have been a very big fan of her music for over 25 years. I was equally thrilled to find out that she had listened to our music.

She has also done a number of collaborations. Most notably with; Yo Yo Ma, Eric Clapton, Chet Atkins, David Gilmore, Georges Zamfir, Gordon Lightfoot, Sir Andrew Davis, Al Di Meola, Steve Morse, Strunz and Farah, Jesse Cook, Pavlo Johannes, Linstead Innis, Oscar Lopez, Ron Korb, Paul Anka, The Canadian Brass, Tracy Chapman and Michael Kamen.
