congratulations to debbie harry and shepard fairey on the collaboration for their new clothing line.

Artist Shepard Fairey and New York City punk/pop queen Debbie Harry are collaborating on a special, limited-edition line for women as part of Fairey’s Obey fashion label.

“I’ve been a Blondie fan my whole life and have collaborated with them in the past, which has been a dream come true. But working with Debbie on this project has been totally inspiring,” Fairey said in a statement. “She’s been very involved and hands-on for the whole process, just another display of her incredible talent.”

i think we can all agree that 2016 was truly a year of ups and downs but at the studio im proud to say that it was a highly productive year.
many of the icons we looked up to musically left this planet but they will always live inside of us with the music they made. this is the real reason that i am so grateful to the people who trust me with their musical journey.

in 2016 i got to work in a number of excellent studios and produce so many great records. i also was officially selected by the recording academy as a GRAMMY member. i can definitely say the musicians i collaborated with are the best of the best and im looking forward to working with all of you in 2017 !
