The audio interviews have quickly made it onto my list of favourite features.
Doing phone interviews or interviews that are just taped, you often end up transcribing the entire conversation so you can later publish it.
This was honestly the most annoying part of my journalism studies.
When you read a statement, there are so many ways to interpret it.
But when you listen to somebody state their opinion, you're most likely to understand it just the way they've meant it.
And because that's exactly what I want to do with house in the sand, these recorded interviews make life a little bit easier and better.
I recently had a chat with one of the most wonderful guys in this industry, James Edan.
James Edan is a singer/songwriter from Glasgow, Scotland.
James is one half of house in the sand's favourite duo, Martin and James.
With the band being on a break, both individuals are now making music on their own.
James' influences vary from intensity of Bruce Springsteen, to Simon and Garfunkel's handcrafted songs, to the Spice Girls and their catchy pop vibes.
His own sound blends Rock, Pop and Folk - in the charming acoustic manner, as well as with big compositions.
His upcoming EP "Flying Solo" showcases his strong and expressive voice and his writing skills. Make sure to keep an eye and an ear on James.
Just a few days ago I got to call James to record a little interview.
We had a little chat about his rather random and unexpected solo career, treating songwriting as a 9 to 5 job, social media and a lot more.
