In an exciting new development for us, we have submitted our first CD to the iTunes Music Store and it has been accepted

In the Company of You is Tina’s third album and her first since she lost her hand in a tragic vehicle accident several years ago. Tina is a very talented guitarist, singer and song-writer and I have often likened her music to something between Dido and Jack Johnson.

With a folk music feel, there is usually a message or story to her songs with some upbeat and happy and others a little more melancholic. All of them on this CD, I think, evoke a feeling of Tina’s recent life journey.

Check it out at Tina Bridgman - In the Company of You … and, if you can, buy a copy to support a wonderful Golden Bay artist.

Lucid Design hopes to be able to help more New Zealand artists promote their music and get it out to the world so we are pretty excited about getting in to the iTunes Music Store.

Since 5 years old William has been knocking out interesting tunes far beyond his age; Knight Rider (later revamped as Just Jazz) was one of his first tunes at five, age 6 brought his very popular Bacon & Eggs, along with that award wining composition ‘Shark Catching The Rainbow Fish’.From classicial he soon became aware of jazz and blues, more recently rock and roll, so his diverse in playing almost anything is much to his credit, and for those of us who are following him into the great wide open can listen and enjoy what this young guy can perform in the future.
