It’s something I’ve been working on since i moved to New York almost 4 years ago. I’m really proud of it and hope you enjoy it. I’ve worked hard but now I got to work harder. I have so much more to learn and to discover and will continue to do so through this blessing of writing and performing song. Much Love.
