Finding Your Sound, Going Full-Time & Feedback with Corey James
Towards the end of 2019, I had the pleasure of hosting ‘Phonic Feature: Corey James’, a masterclass hosted by Liverpool Audio Network dedicated to the craft of Corey James. This podcast is a recording from the introduction to that session where Corey and I had a chat about life, his journey and some of his challenges along the way.
