-BROOKLYN LOVE -
IT's been over 10 years since I made a kickstarter campaign and you all helped me raise the funds to create my first ever full length album.
after taking it down a few years ago at the request/advice from some people helping me make music. I decided it's time to have it back out in the world.
I think it will be a nice bit of nostalgia (for myself too) as well as a way for people to see and hear how my musical journey has developed over time.
Thank you all for your support. Whether you've been here for one day or one decade. It means a lot to me.
