Working hard on new music

 So here's what's going on. Hopefully soon going to the studio with Luis and Travis to work on a new Fashionably Great song. There's a drummer recording drums to a new Suicide Tourists song. I'm working hard at home on a solo song called Camila's Blue Eyes. I also made a new mix of Hangin' Tree and Cursed & Blessed by the Grieving Tree. Thanks for tuning in!
