"I was soooo nervous when I turned up (I took my Mum with me!), I’d never sung on a recording before. Mason really helped me relax, he said “just be yourself, take your time, we can do this together”... great advice. After that it was so much easier and I came away with my first CD of me singing." - Miss D Dalton. Blackheath
