We've had a busy time in the recording studio! SMQ have been commissioned by the State Library of Queensland to record 40 previously unrecorded songs, piano and violin pieces by Queensland composers from the early-to-mid 20th century. We've had a wonderful time documenting these charming Aussie melodies, assisted by Geoff McGahan at Mark McDuff's stunning 'Farmhouse Studio' in Chandler.
