To the right are samples of the demo work being done here at Thunder Pumpkin Recording. Most demos so far have been done by performing singer/songwriters and the artists are doing their own vocals.

If you’re a songwriter but don’t sing we can most likely find the singer to fit your song.

Feel free to contact John with any questions about your project and rates.
