Leaving Came Easy

All my live performances come from this little corner of my apartment now. Here’s another song that changed a lot during pre-production. I’ve been trying to learn it all over again as a solo fingerstyle guitar/voice song. If you missed the latest live stream on Facebook, you can check out the archived video here. Stay […]
