My name is Daniel McBride, 17 years of age, and Ablutophobia EP is the result of 9 months on-and-off recording in a tiny little studio I've managed to set up in my bedroom. I composed and performed all the songs by myself, borrowing various instruments to try and live up to the ideas I had in my head - an endeavour that saw me teach myself cello and euphonium, simply because I'd decided they were essential to the song.
This obsessiveness with which I record has resulted in a lot of sleepless nights, food-less days, and social-contact-less weeks, but I think that it's been worth it. This EP marks the first, and certainly not the last, release from Sheep,Dog&Wolf; a project that for the last nine months has been my steadily growing and increasingly demanding music-baby. So please, download and enjoy!
There are so many people that deserve a mention for their contributions to the making of this EP, so I'd like to give a massive thank you to:
My amazing parents (for putting up with all the noise, and being my bouncing boards for ideas), Sophie and Seb (for all your support, criticism, and for being generally awesome), Nick Fulton and Sarah Gooding (for all of your amazing help with the EP release, and for being pretty much the most incredibly nice people in the world), Michael Goldwater (for teaching me everything I know about woodwind, and for being a very discerning critic), Margaret Robertson (for your various musical teachings, and the cello), Don McGlashan (for your much needed help in the confusing world of the music industry), John Gibson and Nick Bollinger (for some of the most useful criticism I've received from anybody), everybody that I borrowed instruments/equipment from (without you I wouldn't have been able to make this EP), and to all my awesome friends for your support and listening ears!
