Bandcamp is the best place to buy music from Us or any artist but we are on all streaming services Spotify Soundcloud YouTube etc.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

I would love listeners to hear My influences in music composition and  production that I have absorbed on this journey I Love Paul Simmonen and Jah Wobble as bass players also Alan Vega and Suicide as experimental artists. Get a feel of how  how I have expressed those in this  music to give it its own sound with little storyline that’s tucked neatly in the chord changes. Don’t over think it try to feel it.
