Why we should pay attention to you: Aside from my solo releases, look for more collaborative work with friends and production from myself with other bands and artists.
Why it’s important for people to support local art right now: Supporting local art has never been more important. We’re living through a time where creative output is being so drastically impacted but with limited means to get our work out into the world. Having a community rally around its artists is what will keep our culture alive. With the whole city’s support, we have the potential to grow and truly enrich Houston’s artistic identity.
