Hi ... I'm Graham Lavallin ... sole member of a solo project 'Lavallin' ... formerly an Artist working in painting and printmaking ... now working with music projects produced in my home studio ... playing guitar and synths and creating soundscapes which I hope are musical pictures ... this project is in it's early stages but ongoing and I hope diverse.
Why this name?
It's my surname
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It's a great platform for sharing music with a wide audience with a wider degree of personal freedom
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
This project has no history to speak of and is very much in it's infancy ... possibilities at this stage are endless
