The time has now come for these songs to sink or swim”.

A word from Akaleshnus: 

"I am a disciple of Christ who works to live according to the following Scriptures: "Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like, unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." Matthew 22:37-40. The artistry with which God has graciously provided us is a weapon to be used against the devil in our fulfilment of the Lord's Great Commission with which He has tasked us: "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in the earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Matthew 28:18-20. It is my prayer that all of you who bless us with your support forsake evil and follow Christ in this mission that He has given us to strengthen His Church. I pray this over you in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

Chris St John - 'Fly Away'

Chris St John - 'Fly Away'

Fly Away is the title track on Chris St John's forthcoming album Fly Away. A song that brings tears of joy through its poetic lyricism and soulful composition. A song that represents the strongest bond between Chris and his son who is about to live life on his own. Chris is remembering the precious time watching his child grow up and move towards independence. With this powerful song, we get a melodic and heartfelt voice, being the messenger of Chris's heart to his son. This heavily emotional and soothing song is powerful and consistently energetic. It builds a sentimental vibe through its composition that includes guitars, violins, tight drums and excellent bass. The solo part shared between organ and electric guitar landing on the bridge section is fantastic. A wonderful song, completely relatable to all those parents who see their children 'Fly Away' to build their own future and achieve dreams.

Definitely listen to 'Fly Away' by Chris St John on Spotify.

About Chris St John:

"Chris St John has been on a roll these last two years, having written dozens of songs which have appeared on two separate albums.  His first album, I’m Dreaming, which was released in 2021, gained critical acclaim and commercial success.  The album had four chart-toppers on the World Indie Music Charts and the Official European Independent Music Chart, including “I Called You Rose,” which climbed all the way to No. 3.

Recently, Chris was in Nashville, working with legendary producer Stephen Wrench, as well as some of the finest session musicians in Music City, to record his upcoming album Fly Away.  During the production of the album, Chris released the song “Hey Siri,” which quickly hit No. 1 on the World Indie and Official European Independent Music charts and remained there for five weeks. “Hey Siri” has a playful, rolling African groove reminiscent of Paul Simon’s Graceland.  This clever, lively, and thought-provoking song focuses on the drawbacks of modern technology.  Stylistically, it’s an outlier of sorts, scratching only the surface of the deep and impactful artistry Chris showcases over the course of 13 tracks.  The diversity of the songs makes it very hard to fit Chris’ music into any one genre. His voice is velvety and clear on the album’s ballads, and heartfelt and rocking on the up-tempo songs.  His tenor voice has remarkable range and clarity, and his different vocal stylings on each track make it hard to believe it’s the same singer throughout the album."

Chris St John - 'Fly Away'

"Fly Away is set to soar.  The title track is a soulful, poetic, and powerful song about the birth of his son, John, and the times Chris spent with him from childhood through his recent graduation from high school.  He wrote the song as his son was preparing to head off to college. All parents whose children have left the nest can relate to Chris’ heartfelt lyrics: “I just held you I cannot believe it/You’re heading off to live on your own/A million hours, tears joy laughter/I treasured it all, the best years I’ve known…”

The song is set for release on February 25, 2022, his son’s birthday.

Definitely listen to 'Bohemian_Rhapsody' (cover) by Hot Pants de France. Releasing on July 14, 2022 worldwide. Stay tuned on their website and social media platforms to know more.

About Hot Pants de France

Hot Pants de France is:

Sam Kaufmann – Arrangements and Guitar

Lisa Rittner – Vocals and Sax

Jack O’Roonie – Bass and also Bass

Andrea Reynolds and Jane Young – Violin

Hot Pants de France – a Gypsy Jazz/Swing “Supergroup” – uniquely interpreting hits from the ’80s and ’90s. Hot Pants de France incorporates modern influences while staying true to the ground-breaking style created by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli in Quintette du Hot Club de France – one of the first all-string jazz bands.

Child prodigy, top-level touring/session guitarist (Maynard Ferguson, NKOTB, Kenny Loggins) and Emmy nominated film/tv composer Sam Kaufmann captured lightning in a bottle with the very talented musicians forming the Gypsy Jazz and Swing “Supergroup” – Hot Pants de France. Sam has liberated himself from the Hot Jazz canon and presents his own uninhibited, modern style that has matured over the time with Hot Pants de France and highlights what is still to come. Well received by both listeners and the press, the vision was to bring a fresh, contemporary feel to hits from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s by arranging them in the style of jazz great Django Reinhardt. The intention was not to simply recapitulate the music, but to interpret it with a uniqueness, incorporating modern influences, while remaining true to the innovative style created by Django and Stéphane Grappelli in Quintette du Hot Club de France, one of the first all-string jazz bands.

The dichotomy between musical styles of the ’40s and the ’90s is bridged by vocalist Lisa Rittner, elegantly bringing the music into the sound of “today”. Lisa honed her chops for a decade on the Queen Mary and band Sound F/X. In addition to her voice, she gracefully adds her Saxophone prowess to Hot Pants’ samba-esque version of “Black Hole Sun”.

Harkening back to the establishing sound of OG – Stéphane Grappelli, Jane Young (2nd Place International Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, Swiss Dream Circus, NBC, Nova/PBS) constructed excellent counterpoint to Sam’s guitar lines. The two play off each other like a conversation between old friends. Jane’s parts are performed live by violin extraordinaire Andrea Reynolds who, not unlike Stéphane, lends her talents to ground-breaking experimental musical groups.

Finally, touring/session bassist Jack O’Roonie (Andre Williams, Danny B Harvey, Wanda Jackson and Labella Strings endorsee) outlines the harmony while controlling the dynamics and pace of the band with his fantastical yet proficient bass lines.

Years of experience and effortless interaction are clear – noteworthy on the recordings as well as on stage. Standing on the works by Django Reinhardt, it is this unique mix of pop, jazz, americana and inventive compositions that makes the unmistakable sound of the group.

Josh Allen and The Whisky Brothers - 'Keep It in the Ground!'

Josh Allen and The Whisky Brothers - 'Keep It in the Ground!'

'Keep It in the Ground!' is a great initiative expressed strongly through this powerful and hard-hitting song. The depth of words along with the melodic and harmonious music will inspire us all to think about the decisions that we as a society have taken that are negatively affecting the environment and peace on this planet. This song reminds us of the harsh reality of how our need has transformed into our greed and has caused severe damage to the climate which eventually will affect future generations. The song motivates us to challenge and take a step against the exploitation of resources in the name of a better life. Rather, it gives us a good message of planting more trees and protecting nature. This eye-opening song has a mix of crunchy and amplified guitars strumming through the chords. Just like all the instruments, the vocals are expressive and convey emotions that boost the profound meaning of this song. The voices of children at the very end of the song continuing the chorus are heart-warming. The beauty is in the simplicity of the words and the composition which makes this song easy to follow and understand.

Definitely listen to 'Keep It in the Ground!' by Josh Allen and The Whisky Brothers on Spotify.

About Josh Allen and The Whisky Brothers

Josh Allen and the Whisky Brothers started playing together in the spring of 2007 in Austin, Texas. Since then they have released two full-length albums and one EP: "Welcome to the Rockhouse" (2008), "GIANT" (2011), and the "W.B. E.P." (2015).

Now, after a few years' hiatus to start families and whatnot, Josh and the boys are back with a new outlook and a new EP.

"Still Alive" (2022) represents a shift in focus for Josh Allen the songwriter. Unlike the band's previous, more debaucherous, even hedonistic material, this is very much a post-Trump, post-COVID collection of songs, written by a concerned parent in a warming world.

The music, however, remains firmly rooted in Rock and Roll.

The first single from the new EP, "Keep It In The Ground!" is out now on all platforms and has a powerful music video up on YouTube. The full EP "Still Alive" is set for release later this summer.

'Metaverse Riddim' feat. Gully God Mavado with ‘Money & Done’, Mavado & Kalash ‘Money & Done’ Remix, Dovey Magnum performing ‘Polygamy’, Iwaata offering ‘Pillow’ and 450 with ‘2face’. Troyton Rami is a genius when it comes to balancing and mixing tracks. The production is calm and brightens the qualities of the dancehall/reggae genre. The improved dynamics of each musical element make the music sound rich and clear. Blending multiple artists together is a challenge that the producer has accomplished well using his passion and talent for musical art. The relaxed melodic and harmonious flow of all the instruments works completely in the favour of the theme. The project has consistent and minimalist sub-bass and triplet percussion arrangements that are influenced by the well-known traditionally Jamaican style. The riddim that features top recording artists and music producers like Black Shadow & Troyton Remi is certainly a great listening experience.

Eric Terino - 'Innovations of Grave Perversity'

Eric Terino - 'Innovations of Grave Perversity'

The album opens with 'Felt' - a song conveying the heartbreaking feeling of getting through painful loneliness. The poetic depth of words accompanied by Eric Terino's pleasing softly-raspy vocals creates an atmosphere that rains heavy emotion. The composition has a constantly evolving energy that revolves around the sentimental core of the song. One can experience the freedom given to the strings and harp with their spacious and detailed notations creating wonderful patterns that imprints this song in your soul. 'Felt' is the light that guides the listeners through the gates of this album. Next up is 'Torture the Dead'. This is a track with smooth, sustained piano whose sound slowly joins the rest of the instruments and vocals. With this song, the ambience becomes more involved with the music enclosing an emotional depth. The thoughtfulness of words along with the raw and mystical flow of this song creates a warm and intense aura. It conveys all the shades of love, and its power to manipulate life and beyond and having both a bright and dark side that directly or indirectly controls our lives. The absence of a firm rhythmic pattern allows the tune to freely perform the articulations that serve the meaning of this song.

The third track on the album is 'A Snowfall at Dusk', which brings out the soothing chord progressions with mind-melting sounds. The plucking of exquisite harp accompanying vocals, mellow whispering pads in the background and a brief performance of flute does much more to interpret a literal 'snowfall at dusk'. The art shines through the rendition carried out by the music. Every frequency in its place covering contour, range, and scale is used in such a way that it illuminates the essence of the music. Such an approach with rich lyricism supported by minimal instrumentation requires a pre-imagination of how the song is going to turn out; like a puzzle being solved. We can definitely see that the captivating enigma is solved through this slumberous composition. Moving along into 'Invocations'; this track blends the dynamics of previous songs with unique characteristics of the theme. Its broad major chord immediately catches your attention and sets the base for the meaning of the song. The elegance of vibratos immortalized by strings have more presence alongside the gentleness of the piano. A gush of emotions dripping from every element creates a harmonious flow of expressions and sentiments. The warm, sonorous and transcendental melody and lyrics are recalling memories of a lost love and hollowness of their absence.

The fifth track on the album, 'Boulder' is different. Brass and deep bass strings make it their way to illustrate a consistent melancholic aspect through their arrangement. Most of the structure of this song is built on vocals that drive the heartfelt tune. This song truly compels the isolated thoughts and feelings regarding self. Eric's creative approach creates beauty through simplicity in this composition. The artistic and musical transformation at this point in the album can be clearly felt. 'An Augury of Hope' is the next track on the album, and is a look back over life and some troubled times in the past, but having learned a lot from life, look forward to a healed, brighter future. In spite of having all the same instruments, this keeps giving combinations never heard in previous songs. The rhythm has a strong hold guided by plucks and string patterns. Everything feels higher in range and pitch including vocals which does justice to this song of hope.

The influence of heavy vibratos and peaceful nature makes this piece remarkable. Our penultimate track is 'Body Gets Stoned'; a concept of society's ability to sew doubt and destruction, but a warning not to let their words and values find a home in yourself. A tuneful acoustic guitar makes its way into this song, also setting a rhythmic pattern that is strummed. It keeps the temperate and relaxing flow while adding a space for Jolie Holland's vocals which accompanies Eric with resonant harmonies. The direction in which this album is heading also reveals the artist's personal point of view on life and love and making it a legacy through this album. Last but by no means least is 'I Didn't Live There', the last track of the album. This song mulls over shards of memories past, of good times gone, and of revelatory travels. An epic end with its calm and delicate form, a final reminder of how splendid the musicians and vocalist are with their art, that they can plant the seed of emotion and water it well with their music and lyrics.

Definitely listen to - 'Innovations of Grave Perversity' by Eric Terino.

Eric Terino

Innovations of Grave Perversity is Eric Terino’s third long player, and by any measure is his most expansive and layered work. Taking charge from where his sophomore record left off, the album is a parallel journey through the passage of seasons (winter into spring) and the transition from despondency to the birth of new hope and healing. It is a record about attempting to find light in the wake of trauma and working to reframe one’s life in a way that allows for the possibility of joy.

Written and recorded throughout 2020/2021 amidst the height of a global pandemic, the eight tracks that comprise Terino’s third LP started life in his home studio in a New England forest and came to fruition with contributions from musicians based all throughout the world. Cello tracks flown in from Russia, French horns from Italy, harps from the UK, and even a musical saw from Greece. Notably featured on a number of tracks is the distinctive voice and hauntingly beautiful violin of legendary Americana singer/songwriter Jolie Holland. It was as a result of the lockdowns that many new connections were able to be forged remotely and Terino’s experience of making this record became a tool to feel connected to other musicians and artists in a time when such camaraderie was greatly needed.

Lead single “Body Gets Stoned” was written by Terino nearly 15 years ago and features stirring violin and vocals from Jolie Holland, whose contribution allowed for the track to finally feel complete and ready to be properly documented. “‘Body Gets Stoned’ is sort of my take on a ‘Que Sera Sera’ (Doris Day’s 1956 hit from Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Man Who Knew Too Much’). Basically, it’s a Buddhist kind of mentality that all is as it is and will be as it will be. So there’s no point in fighting upstream.  Ultimately the solution to any struggle is in letting the river take us where we need to go, which in my opinion… is home.”

Elsewhere, the record explores a wide range of themes such as mental illness, aging, leaving past loves behind, accepting childlessness, and renouncing damnation. All driven by an emotive intimate vocal and delicate near orchestral arrangements. Whether the subject matter is bereavement (“Invocations”), agoraphobia (“Boulder”), or the experience of coming out as an LGBTQ youth (“A Snowfall at Dusk”), the songs that comprise Innovations of Grave Perversity transform the deeply personal into universal statements on the complexities of human life.

“I feel more hopeful and open than I’ve ever felt before. There’s something nearly magical that can happen when you’re writing. You have to be careful because what you write could manifest itself into reality. So with this record, this was my attempt to shift the narrative of my life from a tragedy to a realm of potential for joy."

About Eric Terino

Eric Terino

Tapping into the rich timeless history of romance and poetics past, Eric Terino’s musical landscape paints a portrait of an American artist with a sweeping perspective on what it means to be human. The deeply personal becomes universal and heartbreak can be transformed to healing. Similar in fashion to Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold, his tales of suffering mend with beauty. Gilding the places we have been hurt as a means of moving forward. This potential for alchemy exists everywhere, and Terino’s serenaded solitude reminds us of the infinite beauty in it all.

David Lockwood - 'The Rest Is History'

 

David Lockwood - 'The Rest Is History'

Admiringly harmonious and relaxed is the vibe that holds our hand through the journey of this 14-track album. David Lockwood's emotive and sensational vocals and lyrics create an indivisible affection towards this album for the listener. Supporting, complementary background vocals and harmonies form a wide spectrum of diversely textured voices. The composition is intended towards doing justice to the lyrics by encouraging their depth and purpose beyond the music. An absolutely beautiful piano rendition plays keys that travel through many tunes, variations, ranges and chords. Tracks have a sustained warmth and bright tone that softly blends with the guitars, strengthing the structure of the songs. Clean and colourful guitar tones shine throughout the album with its rich and fine-tuned performance. Excellence exists in the deft way that these compositions use spaces, complemented with instruments trailing off, allowing each song time to breathe and the listener to reflect. Smooth and firm bass, drums and percussion bring out a dynamic jazz accent through their tone and rhythmic patterns. Crafty and complex chord progressions are non-distracting and accentuate the sentimental aspect of each song. This album honours artists' thoughts through its heart-touching music and lyricism.

Definitely listen to 'The Rest Is History' by David Lockwood on Spotify.

Recorded “live in the studio” at Dreamland Recording September 27-30 of 2021 with top-flight musicians Kevin Barry (Rosanne Cash, Marc Cohn, Peter Wolf) on guitar, Zev Katz (Aretha Franklin, James Taylor, Elton John) on bass, Chris Marshak (Steve Winwood, Amy Helm, Lucy Kaplansky) on drums with Erica Leigh and Clare Maloney on backing vocals. The songs reflect on memory, mortality, and the many forms love takes.

About David Lockwood:

David Lockwood

"I was born in '51. My mom said I was picking out tunes on the piano when I was three or so, but I don't remember that. She had a flair for storytelling and tended to mythologize my childhood. I do remember figuring out 'My Country 'Tis of Thee' on the harmonica when I was five or so. It seemed like magic. And even after all these years of playing, writing, and recording, the creation of music still seems like magic."

After high school and knocking around in New York City and DC in the 1970s, Lockwood enrolled at Berklee College of Music in Boston and graduated in 1980. "I wrote and recorded a bunch of songs while I was at Berklee, sent out demos to publishers, got some songs signed, got some rejections. One of my favourite lines was 'You write interesting songs. That's a liability in this business.'"

In the 1980s and early '90s, he wrote "interesting" songs for, and performed as, Little Davey and the Aberrations, and recorded three albums of original pieces for solo piano: Music From a Fall Afternoon, Diamonds in the Snow, and Blue Distance. "I recently retrieved the last two and converted to digital. I think they've held up pretty well, all things considered." He also wrote music and lyrics for two decidedly offbeat musicals: Awesome at the Academy and A Rash Act. A third musical, Free 2 Ride, followed in 2007.

Lockwood joined the New Hampshire band Straight No Chaser in the late 80's and wrote most of the material for their well-received debut album Raccoon Beach, released in 1992. "We had some quality gigs in support of that album: Newport Jazz Festival in Saratoga Springs, the Blue Note in New York, White Mountain Jazz and Blues, and a bunch of others."

In 1995, Lockwood had the opportunity to spend two weeks with his songwriting hero Randy Newman as he was beginning to write the score for Toy Story while recording vocals for his album, Faust. "He was so generous and even more wickedly funny than I thought possible. He was also very direct. When I told him I'd been struggling to write lyrics, his response was 'You got anything to say?'"

Well, yes. Lockwood had and still has something to say. Through the 1990s, the aughts, and into the present, he has continued to write, record, and perform in and around New England while also serving as the celebrated music director, baseball coach, and Dean of Pranks for Holderness School in Plymouth, NH."

Blind Uncle Harry - 'I Just Want You To Know'

Blind Uncle Harry - 'I Just Want You To Know'

'I Just Want You To Know' is one of those songs which carries emotions when presented in its natural form. This lyrically driven song already establishes its strong message and gives you an insight into its true meaning. The absence of overprocessed and polished sound is what makes this song unique and leaves an emotional impact on the mind. The clarity of vocals and their successive harmonies make them easy to follow and sing along with. The subtle blend of folk and rock elements is ingenious and has a genuine influence on the theme. A simple and traditional combination of fiddle and acoustic guitar contributes to the intricacy of this tune. A modest place for bass provides a significant warmth while also supporting the rhythm. The inclusion of electric guitar and snappy drums adds melodic and tonal quality to the spectrum. The underlying vintage dynamics serves up the isolated and saturated sound of all the musical elements as intended. Even though the composition and lyrics are amusing and engaging, the delightful humour has a powerful message for the listeners.

Alexis Gerred - 'Unbreakable (Feat. MiG Ayesa)'

Alexis Gerred - 'Unbreakable (Feat. MiG Ayesa)'

'Unbreakable (Feat. MiG Ayesha)' is a fast ride of spicy rock and pop elements. It's a song with a vigorous energy that challenges musical and rhythmic complexities and wins! Squeezing out every last drop of melody through its composition, this song is loaded with wild, fantastic and unexpected variations in its flow. Tight and sharp drums and percussion sync their power with crunchy and monumental guitar riffs. Punchy lows and overheads, deep bass, a touch of electronic elements and a sick guitar solo are some of the many characteristics that uplift the vitality of the track. The collaboration with MiG Ayesa unifies the depth and significance of the song. Verses and chorus have flawless transitions with remarkable articulations connecting the sections. Gently blending brass with the guitar is genius and makes the sound immense and lavish. Effective key changes make the song a whole lot brighter and more engaging while also delivering the profundity of lyrics. The voice is a force of nature, brought to us through the sheer vehemence and mastery over high range vocals and harmonies. You can feel that the breathtaking voice is the strength and emotive power driving the song forward. In a performance that acknowledges this awesome force, Alexis Gerred has achieved unbeatable distinction. 

'Unbreakable (Feat. MiG Ayesa)' by Alexis Gerred is available to stream worldwide on all streaming platforms.

About Alexis Gerred:

Alexis Gerred

"Star of West End theatre & TV to launch his first single from his upcoming EP.
All streaming Links go live on 11th March HERE: https://alexisgerred.hearnow.com

ALEXIS GERRED, will be launching his highly anticipated first single in 3 years, on March 11th, followed by an EP later this year. From Rod Stewart to David Bowie, to Phil Collins and Freddie Mercury, the West End Theatre made us familiar with such British Rock stars, whose names are forever recorded in everyone’s heart and mind.

And now, one of those rising stars emerging from the West End, is Alexis Gerred, an English Rock singer-songwriter based in London. Alexis’s name is known for his leading roles on stage productions such as ‘Our House’, ‘Dreamboat & Petticoats’, and ‘American Idiot’. He also appeared on prime-time BBC1 live television in Eurovision: ‘Your Country Needs You’ (Runner Up) and ‘Let It Shine (Semi-Finalist)’.

Alexis Gerred’s Emotional New Single, “Unbreakable” Drops March 11th
Collaboration with artist MiG Ayesa makes song highly meaningful

London, UK (March 11th, 2022) – How many musical artists get the opportunity to collaborate with the star who inspired them to make music to begin with? Alexis Gerred has. His new single, “Unbreakable,” features his inspiration and hero, MiG Ayesa, the West End and Broadway titan who has starred in such mega hits as Rock of Ages, Thriller Live, Annie, We Will Rock You, and more.

Fast-paced, with a smooth combination of both timeless rock influences with modern pop appeal, “Unbreakable” features a range of dynamics, resulting in a distinctive, one-of-a-kind flow.

Fans of artists like The Red Hot Chili Peppers, David Bowie, Queen, Foo Fighters and the Beatles will be drawn to the song’s heartfelt and passionate rock energy.

“Unbreakable” is the lead track on Gerred’s second album, releasing later this year. His first album, Alexis, debuted in 2018.

The collaboration with Ayesa is more than two talented artists working together. Like many of us, when he was younger Gerred wasn’t sure what he wanted to do with his life. It was when he saw his first musical, We Will Rock You in London’s West End that his life – and career path - changed forever. The musical, inspired by Queen, starred Ayesa, a rising star in British Theatre.

“I watched MiG Ayesa take to the stage and his delivery, passion and charisma flipped a switch inside me,” Gerred recalls. “Although I had never even attempted singing a note before, I knew I wanted to emulate him and follow a path that would one day see me up on that stage, too.”

And he did. Gerred followed his dreams and has gone on to star in multiple London productions as well as shows like “Eurovision: Your Country Needs You” (BBC1 – runner up) and “Let it Shine” (BBC1 – semi-finalist).

While Gerred built his career, Ayesa’s star continued to rise, landing the Australian-Filipino talent in leading roles in hits like Rock of Ages, Thriller Live, Annie, and more. He also appeared on Rockstar: INXS, leading to his own debut album with Decca Records.

“I’ve followed MiG’s career and plucked inspiration from so many things he’s done,” explains Gerred. “One that stands out in particular was his time on Rockstar: INXS where I loved his Rock ‘n Roll style of showmanship.”

The opportunity to collaborate on “Unbreakable” with Ayesa is even more meaningful by the personal nature of the song, based on a relationship with a former acting agent that turned sour. “Unbreakable” is about staying driven and focused on one’s dreams, an important message for many in today’s tumultuous world.

“This song is about resilience and determination,” says Gerred. “If I can inspire someone to take charge of their own lives and bounce back from adversity, that’s my goal.”

“Unbreakable” will be available March 11th on all streaming/download sites and is accompanied with a B-Side “Mary Go Round”, a cover originally by British Rock band The Struts.
