Hey Andrew

Early on, I saw (and told you) that you hit the ground running, and here we are - congratulations! :) I do think your success is outstanding - owed to the combination of very hard work and a lot of talent. And not to forget the time management. All I can say is that I am underwater with only two kids. My time management must be lousy... :lol: For someone like you, TAXI is the perfect vehicle for a jump start into the music business.

Andrew,
Thanks for the viewpoint from your 'uncommon sense' and humor. Good motivation for one just starting out this year.

I'm a bit late to the party here, but congratulations on all of your successes! It was great meeting you and chatting at the Road Rally. I just know that one day I'll be able to point to you from a distance and tell somebody else that I knew you when you were just a rookie, before becoming a music production superstar, haha! :D Anyway, here's to continued success!

Thanks for posting!! I have 5 kids and run a real estate business so I feel your pain! :D I haven't been as active on the forums lately because thanks to Taxi I have Libraries asking for more music which I'm scrambling to create since I'm just getting started... my dream problem! I'm blown away that your set up is so modest given your productions sound absolutely amazing!! Congrats on your success thus far...keep up the amazing work! Thanks again for sharing!! Good thoughts and well wishes from El Paso, TX! - Henry

Tom - You're encouraging words have gone a long way in this last year! And in regards to the underwater thing... I'm there with ya, man. :lol: One day at a time though!

Glad you thought it was helpful, Alan! That first year was definitely challenging at times, but hang in there and rely on this great community for inspiration and encouragement! :)

Thanks Dean! If you're at the next rally, I'll 100% be planning on finding you for one of the listening sessions again so we can chat about our takes on the different songs!
