    Like many musicians turned recording engineers, Glenn Thomas began learning his craft on his own, long before setting foot in a “real” recording studio. He didn’t have a choice – growing up, the closest city with a professional studio was six hours away. From his early days of bouncing tracks on a cheap four-track cassette recorder, Thomas has progressed to become the owner of Newfoundland, Canada studio, ITuneAudio providing recording and production services for a wide variety of Canadian and… View this post
