A note from Will introducing Tom Eaton, Imaginary Road Studios engineer
I would like to reach out to our valuable community of Imaginary Road artists to share updates, news and exciting changes at Imaginary Road Studios.
Tom Eaton is simply the most talented engineer I have ever had the privilege to work with. He's also a wonderful human being and has become my co-producer in all the work I do. His knowledge and his heart have become indispensable to me in my career and he makes it more fun than it's ever been for me.
Tom is a brilliant musician and has produced two wonderful CDs, “indesterren” and “abendromen”. He won 2016 Best New Artist at the most recent ZMR Awards in New Orleans. I want to add my congratulations to the long list of people who have been so touched by his music.
Briefly: Tom is an Engineer and Producer with over 17 years of experience. He is also a musician (pianist), and therefore brings a unique level of knowledge and perspective to the process. Tom loves and grew up listening to Windham Hill and knows the catalogue better than I do.......
We have been happily and seamlessly working together for a number of months producing new albums and a quality of music I am proud of. I feel very fortunate to have found such a wonderful and talented Engineer. We have decided this partnership is what we both want for our lives and careers. Its an important commitment to the studio and I welcome Tom to this family knowing that you will all find him to be the brilliant and caring person I have come to know.
Corin wishes to establish his own business, which is both inevitable and right. I wish him success following his chosen pathway working out of his studio in Maine and would like to take this opportunity to thank him for the years he has spent at the studio. We all wish Corin the best in his future endeavors.
I would love to talk to each and every one of you individually about your future projects and offer you the opportunity to visit the studio to meet Tom. It would be our pleasure to help you plan any future projects, your music is the most important thing to us and we would not be nearly as successful without such an amazing and talented group of artists.
I have enjoyed working with each and every one of you and look forward to seeing you all soon.
