Day 28: In the studio!

When I created Herbert Peabody, I wanted him to be a fun character that was a little bit cheeky, just like the children I was writing for. One of the things I had Herbie do was rhyme, or rap, in the veggie patch, and today those rhymes were recorded.

Gareth Leach is an amazing musician and producer. He performs and tours in his own bands (yes, plural!) and produces music for others. We’ve worked on a music project together previously, and when I asked whether he would lay some tracks for Herbie, Gareth said yes!

Until tomorrow,
