Dirty Laundry Single
As I've been learning to produce I wanted to release a single separately from the Seasons EP of a song that I have recorded every instrument. I wrote a song called Dirty Laundry when I was driving in the car one winter evening and I absolutely loved it. My friend Valentino will be producing and mastering this track and so I'm even more excited. Dirty Laundry will be released on April 30th and the pre-save link is below!
