Daniel McDougall, from the band Young Ideas, said; "To be involved in the College album is something that I have found to be extremely useful. In the ever-changing music industry, any promotion you can get involved in is essential. Producing a College album to promote the talent within it has allowed a band like Young Ideas to gain a wider audience. It has also given me insight to the way in which a CD is put together and the processes that go with it. Overall, I thank the College for thinking up new and innovative ways to help promote its students."
