Fall and Christmas 2014



from everyone at Tractor!


2014 was full of many projects, lots of recording and mixing, a few projects completed and many more on deck for the new year.  We added a new page this year- Bruce Enloe and the Burning Sensations.  We are happy to have him aboard.  2014 also ushered in the era of Paul Mahar videos, which have brought something a little extra to this site and also our youtube channel.  We are all looking forward to 2015 and have plans to upgrade our studio and of course continue with more recordings, videos and who knows what...


Thanks and Happy Holidays
