This is what we really need today.
Take listen the Curtis Mayfield,
and hear the optimism.
Thank you Curtis!
Happy to release a tack compilation of indie music that I’ve worked on in last couple of years. It’s now available on all streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon Music, etc…
It’s dramatic underscore, mostly electronic, but with elements of live instrumentation sprinkled throughout.
Beware it’s definitely not Mad Men!
I’d thought I create a playlist of some of my favorite music on Spotify.
What do you think? Any suggestions?
I’ll be adding more as I go along, just getting going now…
