Artist: Heather Lyons
Song: Life That Matters
Home: Illinois

Heather says:
Always considered myself primarily a singer and lyricist.
But the ability to compose music through MixCraft has really allowed me to start feeling like a legitimate all-around musician. It's a dream come true.

Gorian Says:
Just a fella that's been around forever musically. I have been in many bands, recorded tons of times, and my so called claim to fame is being in the top ten singer shortlist to replace Rob Halford of Judas Priest, but now I work in a bank, so all for naught I guess. Still love to record though!

Artist: David Cartner
Song: Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Star
Home: Canada, Ontario

David says:
Living out my music fantasies from my Home studio located in my bedroom" in Toronto Canada. I've always loved music from the time that I was a little boy. My father was a country radio DJ for over 30 years and my oldest sister was a member of the Tommy Hunter show and had a number of hit songs back in the 60s. My family has always been my inspiration for music and now I've found new inspiration from the wonderful musicians here on Live. I have found so much joy in using Mixcraft and I hope you will enjoy listening to my creations.
