The L Project Sponsors

 

Our generous sponsors are how Georgey and Sofia are able to put together the projects, these sponsors have all contributed to Project #1 "It Does Get Better" which has paid for:

Studio recording and mixing fees, accomodation, food and travel for the artists during recording in London, printing of flyers, posters and other physical promo material for the song.

These sponsors appear in order of time/monetary contribution, some have donated both.

If you are interested in becoming an official sponsor, or have services you can donate for free, please contact us.

 

nb. if there is a sponsor missing here it is because did not wish to be advertised

Name: Dean Street Studios

 

Contribution: Dean Street Studios provided The L project with a significantly reduced rate (thanks to Jazz) to enable us to record and mix the track with them. However that does not indicate the many hours the engineers actually put in, of their own time, to make this track what it is today. Big thanks go to Alexander Beitzke (engineer) and Mark Jones (technical assistant).
