This song lasted about four years and saw many releases, but I’m happy to say that with the help of the team at Off the Row, I finally made it. I feel like it also reflects where I am in my art. I’ve spent my time exploring my artistic influences and playing with many great musicians, but I’ve finally come through with this song and my upcoming releases.”
