Check This Out: “The Independents”

In Music by David Carbonara

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 defiantly not Mad Men!
