The aim is simple, the task probably not: two people attempt to write and record an album, in one year, while holding down full-time jobs - a process we are now calling ‘Tunelighting’. Can it be done?
In this podcast series, friends Jack Edwards and Rob Wreglesworth will document their journey from day one - where they have no band name, no songs and no idea where to start - to day 365, where they will (hopefully) have a completed musical record.
Each episode will cover a different subject related to recording music at home, sharing tips, insights and lessons learned along the way.
The hope is that this podcast can act as a template for anyone else who wants to try Tunelighting!

The Big Album Reveal! - Part 1
The album launch is just around the corner and so to celebrate and to bring this series to a close Jack and Rob go through the album one track at a time, breaking down how all the individual tracks came together. This episode features the first 7 tracks with the rest of the tracks coming on part 2 next time (which will hopefully coincide with the album release!)

As we near the end of Season 1 and the album release, Rob and Jack reflect on the journey and discuss the biggest lessons they each learned along the way.
The hosts ponder if they were to do it all again what would they do differently? And what advice would they give to anyone else wanting to do a similar Tunelighting project?

Making an album isn't just about the music, ok it mainly is, but album artwork is something that shouldn't be overlooked. Whilst the band wait for their masters to be returned they are discussing the other essential things that are required prior to the album launch. Is album artwork still important? Why is it important? Why are certain covers so iconic? All this discussed and more in this week's episode.
