Sean D. Austin – Singer-Songwriter, Paranormal Investigator & Demonologist

Written by: Frank Iacono

Sean Austin is a singer-songwriter, published author, paranormal investigator and demonologist. Currently, Sean is starring on the Travel Channel’s new paranormal show called Ghost Loop. Previously, he also starred on the Destination America Network (Discovery Channel) pilot series The Demon Files with retired NYPD police officer-turned-demonologist, Ralph Sarchie, upon whom the movie Deliver Us from Evil was based.

On and off of TV, Sean travels the country with fellow paranormal investigators, documenting evidence of the paranormal in video, photo and audio forms. He not only employs his growing medium and psychic abilities to investigate and help spirits and families find peace, but he also uses the latest paranormal technologies to “see” and “hear” entities to determine whether or not specific hauntings are residual or intelligent, friendly or malevolent.

With a strong Catholic faith, Sean’s pursuits in the paranormal are grounded in his religious beliefs. In his first published work Shadow Chaser, Sean shares some of the experiences that shaped his path in the pursuit of the unexplained and unknown. In the book, he discloses these profound encounters with the hope of helping people and expanding upon spiritual awareness.

Sean’s musical style exists in the vein of the Goo Goo Dolls and Pearl Jam. His music is heartfelt hitting home to the emotional high and low points of life’s obstacles with doses of encouraging hope within every shadow of our yesterdays. Fans of new Pop Rock Music 2020, Maroon 5, Switchfoot, The Voice artists, America’s Got Talent and American Idol will enjoy listening to Austin’s songs.

In this edition of The Creative Spotlight, we caught up with Sean Austin where we talked about his musical influences, his songwriting and recording process, his first published book and soon to be released second book, his work on Ghost Loop and The Demon Files as well as his short and long-term future plans.

Q&A Session

The Creative Spotlight: At what age did you first realize that you first wanted to be a musician and whom or what would you say inspired you?

Sean Austin: I first realized I wanted to be a musician around age 12, when I watched Pearl Jam’s music video for their song “Jeremy”. Watching that video and seeing how they represented such a taboo subject like teen suicide, coupled with Eddie Vedder’s highly emotional and forceful vocal performance, it truly left a lasting impression on me. I honestly had full body chills seeing Eddie’s eyes roll up into his head as if he was actually possessed with the spirit of Jeremy Wade Delle, a high school student who shot himself in front of his English class because he was being tormented. From that moment, I knew exactly what my destiny held for me from a career perspective. That experience lured me right in with the desire to sing and play guitar. From there, I took three guitar lessons and then my ear became my teacher. This led me to writing songs and being in a band. Ultimately, I would gravitate toward being a solo artist. On my first solo project, I actually played all the instruments including drums, bass guitar as well as sang.

TCS: What famous musical artists and/or bands were among your early influences and describe for us how they impacted and/or shaped your musical style?

SA: As I mentioned above, Pearl Jam was one of those defining bands that truly influenced me as a musical artist but there were a few others too. Equally, I was also motivated by emotional and inspirational bands such as the Goo Goo Dolls and Swithfoot. The songs these bands create really resonate with the music that I would ideally like to produce. Music has always been my “invisible therapist”. Like those artists, I too enjoy singing about real-life experiences, expressing emotions that hopefully inspire and/or help others cope with daily situations that we all face. The power of being able to extend your emotions from writing lyrics, adding music and then releasing it as a song can really be soul healing. The ultimate goal is to have someone listen to my music and be as inspired the same way my favorite bands moved me.

TCS: Personally, one of my favorite songs off of your Shapeshifter album is the track called “That’s Enough,” so can you share with us the meaning behind the song?

SA: “That’s Enough” was written about someone involved in a toxic relationship. Sometimes, in a relationship, we let things buildup and fester behind the scenes without being honest to ourselves or with one another leading to more chaos. This song examines how people sometimes shutoff their feelings – ultimately leaving the other person emotionally caught up without explanation. This can be a push-pull, back and forth kind of thing but truthfully the individual has to learn to lead more with their head rather than their heart. Even if there are still feelings, he/she has to know when it’s time to walk away. There are always valuable life lessons to be learned but the most important is to not let history repeat itself.


TCS: What inspired you to write your first book entitled Shadow Chaser?

SA: Honestly, the main reason I decided to write Shadow Chaser was because I felt compelled to share some of the experiences that have shaped my path in pursuit of the unknown. In my wildest dreams, I never could have imagined that I would become a published author but in hindsight it was the best decision I ever made. In the book, I disclose my profound experiences in the hopes of potentially helping one person or thousands of people while expanding upon spiritual awareness. As the saying goes, everything happens for a reason and with that kept in mind we should all share our own spiritual experiences for the greater good. Today, my mission or calling is to help souls.

TCS: What is the title of your second book, what is it about and when will it be published?

SA: I plan to call my second book Shadow Chaser The In Between with a tentative Summer 2020 release date. Essentially, this book will serve as a continuation of paranormal experiences and cases that I’ve worked on since the completion of Shadow Chaser. We cover subjects including the demonic possession of a pregnant girl, haunted woods with a demonic pig, a shapeshifting demon forming into a spider and my personal experiences with the actual Amityville Horror House in New York. Additionally, I also provide prayers for the dead giving incentives to earthbound spirits to find peace and accept God’s unconditional love and forgiveness. So, it’s not all dark and evil!

TCS: I understand that you have some connection to the actual Amityville house and the spirit of a young child named John, can you share some specific details with us?

SA: Yes, the connection all started one day while I was live streaming in front of the Amityville house and by the DeFeo gravesite. This little boy, named John, started coming through on my spirit box even asking for prayers. I know that demonic entities can disguise themselves as any voice but according to professional opinion demons would never ask for a prayer. So, I prayed for the little boy as I would any earthbound spirit. For weeks following and even up until today, I’ve felt a presence that has awakened me many times at 3:15 am. After having all of these experiences, I began writing the story about this and all of the unsettling experiences involving the case. I will delve more into the story, and what transpired in my new book.

TCS: Describe for us your experience working with the Spirit Hunters on the Travel Channel’s new series Ghost Loop?

SA: When paranormal entities terrorize the living through endless and repetitive supernatural cycles, manifesting again and again in the same location, it is known as a “ghost loop.” Now, a team of highly specialized paranormal experts known as Spirit Hunters, who focus on this distinct type of haunting, are stepping in to help both the living and the dead. At each haunted location, my team and I build an emotionally charged trigger environment to lure the entity and break the terrifying cycle.

The most important reason why I got involved in the show was based on the opportunity to help people from across the country who are dealing with these types of hauntings. We don’t charge people for this kind of service which is great. Having the financial backing to reach a great number of people that I would’ve never been able to reach on my own is the special factor that attracted me to this project.

TCS: In the Ghost Loop episode entitled “Alarmed and Dangerous” explain how you the Spirit Hunters were able to help a Houston, Texas woman who was being terrorized by an aggressive entity?

SA: In this episode, the Spirit Hunters head to Houston, Texas, to help Becky, a woman being terrorized by an aggressive male entity who rushes her from her front door. The house is steeped in bloody history, the home is packed with negative energy that threatens to tear the team apart.

The story involves a man who was very abusive toward his girlfriend. One night, he lost control and began attacking her. In defending herself, she took matters into her own hands and shot him dead. The man seemed to be manifesting in Becky’s house in one concentrated area. In order to remove the “ghost loop” haunting, we first had to lure him out by recreating a trigger environment linked to the 1920s when this murder allegedly took place. This allowed us the best chance to have the entity listen to us and either accept his judgment in the light or we would need to force him out by blessing the home. In this case, I believe he decided to accept our offer and go towards the light. Becky has not seen this man’s spirit manifest since we were there.


TCS: As a practicing Catholic, under the apprenticeship of retired NYPD police officer-turned-demonologist Ralph Sarchie, tell us about how you learned your crafts of paranormal investigation, mediumship and demonology?

SA: Within the first few years of conducting investigations and having experienced many unique happenings, it truly felt like I had triggered an internal spiritual awakening. As a result, I believe that I had advanced my education and knowledge of the Paranormal but realized that I still needed more training and understanding on why these things occur and how best to protect myself from them.

With that, I purchased several books including Ralph’s Beware of the Night. At the time, I had my own radio podcast and later had him on as a guest and we discussed his book. The first time we chatted, we got into many deep conversations about what he calls, and I now also refer to as, “the Work”. This references the spiritual “calling” of God to be a religious Demonologist. Essentially, investigating cases of the demonic and assisting in the exorcisms of humanity’s most ancient–and most dangerous–foes.

Ralph taught me a lot about demonology especially concerning the different types of cases you can encounter in the process. With the combination of on-the-job training and reading his book now known as Deliver Us From Evil, the name of the movie based on his book, I have learned a great deal of valuable information that has helped me formulate a definitive direction of who I am as an paranormal investigator as well a religious demonologist.

I was tremendously proud to be associated with Ralph. He was involved in the paranormal during its pioneering years when it wasn’t “cool” to be a paranormal investigator. Back then, most people became investigators for research and to genuinely try and help people, not just for the fame on television like it is today.

TCS: Describe for us your experience working with Ralph Sarchie on Destination America’s series The Demon Files?

SA: Working with him on Destination America’s series The Demon Files was nothing short of humbling. It was truly a gift to be a part of such a great show with someone who is so well respected in this field. Ralph has really honed his craft. He has a strong willed personality but shines in his sound belief in faith and knowledge. He approaches each case with the ultimate goal of helping people. I have nothing but the upmost respect for him and for “the Work” he’s accomplished, and I will always be grateful for everything he has done for me personally and spiritually.

TCS: In The Demon Files episode entitled “The Mirror” explain how you and the team helped Leigh-Ann and her family when they were being plagued by demonic attacks?

SA: “The Mirror” was a really emotional case for the team. In this episode, an evil latched onto a family forcing them to reach out to Ralph and his team for help. During the investigation, we found out Leigh-Ann, their daughter, who struggles with addiction and even tried to kill herself, had previously made a pact with the devil by cutting herself over a pentagram. Additionally, we discovered that there was another boy who allegedly took his life on the property too.

Once we entered the home, you could feel the high level of oppressive energy in the house. You could cut through it with a knife. As we investigated, we smelled Sulphur. Ralph performed a religious provocation to force the evil entity out, so we could expose exactly what it was, so we could properly move forward and perform an exorcism on the property. At one point, as Ralph stood near the mirror in the upstairs bathroom, I tasted crushed pills in my mouth. I didn’t know at the time, but Leigh-Ann had taken a bunch of pills in front of that mirror when she attempted to end her life. Another interesting fact we learned about the mirror was that it had been in house with the previous owner and death. It really seemed connected to what was going on.

 

Towards the end of the night, I was on Leigh-Ann’s bed trying to coerce the alleged boy spirit who took his life to crossover. As soon as I did this, I felt the presence of a demonic entity in the room with me, and I saw this red like mist appear in front of the bed. At the same time, I could see a creature with scales all over its face with piercing fangs and cat like eyes. I stood my ground but then the window drape began to move violently, and I jumped to my feet. Earlier that night, Ralph had been in her room as well and a bunch of DVDs were thrown off the shelf in front of him and one of those DVDs was the movie based on his book Deliver Us From Evil.

In hopes of having Leigh-Ann regain her life and faith, we performed a full exorcism over the house and also had her say a revoking prayer three times in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We felt that this would provide her with the best chance to live without this dark cloud that had been haunting her.

TCS: What is the most bizarre paranormal situation that you’ve worked on during your illustrious career?

SA: Bizarre? Hmm one of the stories I am writing about in my second book is about a girl who was possessed while she was pregnant. The amount of experiences and evidence I have without even being in the same state as the girl is truly astounding. I have recordings of her speaking Latin, English, backwards and even hissing at a crucifix without even seeing me on the phone. I once received 13 scratches on my arm while praying for her on the phone. Oddly enough, I heard her being choked with laughing coming through the phone. I even had one experience of her and her friend calling me screaming bloody murder as they were driving. I could hear pelts hitting the car. Both of them in terror screaming “what is happening right now?” They explained how black birds were hitting the car as they were driving home. To this day, I have never experienced similar things to that level and I believe it’s important to share this horrific unsettling story in hopes of preventing other people from messing around with dark magic.

TCS: What does the short and long-term future look like for Sean Austin?

SA: As previously mentioned, I’m currently working on my second published book. Additionally, I also have a new EP being released in the near future entitled Foresee. Equally, I hope to continue being active as a paranormal investigator and religious demonologist trying to make a significant difference. While I am on this planet, my mission is to help any person or earthbound spirit that I come in contact with in any way possible.

Kassie K. Lead Singer & Songwriter

Written by: Frank Iacono

Kassie K. is a Canadian-born singer-songwriter from a small city an hour outside of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Kassie who first gained music recognition for her fitness parody “All About Those Gains,” has since attracted fans from across the globe with her vast vocal variability as well as her exceptional lyrical talent. This pop music sensation, who recently signed with Mi5 Recordings, continues to record covers for her fans on social platforms such as Instagram, YouTube and Facebook; but her main focus nowadays is working on her original work – something not unfamiliar to the young artist.

Since a young age, Kassie loved music. With the support of her parents, she began taking singing lessons and performing at local festivals in grade school. By the time she was 11 years old, Kassie was already writing and recording her own music. During high school she fronted the four-piece pop/rock band, Bell Tower Dreams, winning Band of the Month honors in 2009 for local prominent radio station 99.3 CFox. Citing musical differences, the band eventually went their separate ways leaving her with the necessary experience she needed to thrive as a songwriter and performer.

Since making her debut as a solo artist, Kassie has released a total of six original songs. Her first release under the Mi5 Recordings banner, “Out of Sight,” garnered high praise from those within the music industry. With its synthesized pop sounds and strong vocals, she introduced herself in bold fashion turning heads and making everyone take note.

Her latest single entitled “Let Go” is a great track that truly demonstrates her exceptional lyrical talent, powerful pop vocals and solid guitar work. Her vocal talent is obvious from the first verse of any of her songs; her voice dances through her ballads, reaching out to touch the heart of the listener. Even more moving are her vividly real lyrics that spell out her desires and emotions unfettered by what they “should” be. She is incredibly honest in her music and is not afraid to change aspects of her style between songs, which is to her benefit.

In this edition of The Creative Spotlight, we caught up with Kassie K. where we talked about her musical influences, her songwriting and recording process, her experience in the music business, her parody music videos as well as her short and long-term future plans.

Q&A Session

The Creative Spotlight: At what age did you first realize that you wanted to be a musician and whom or what would you say inspired you?

Kassie K.: Ever since I can remember, I always knew I wanted to be a singer. When I was really little, I actually preferred singing over speaking during conversations. As a child, I was always profoundly infatuated with performing. I would often sing and dance for anyone who was willing to watch and listen. Even now, whether I am performing for just one person or a large crowd, that feeling of excitement, passion and genuine happiness that I feel while on stage is unmatched. I’m not sure if I could say any specific person or moment in my life inspired me to become a singer – it has always just been an innate part of me. Music has always been and always will be a huge part of my life.

TCS: What famous musical artists and/or bands were among your early influences and describe for us how they impacted and/or shaped your musical style?

KK: Growing up, I was obsessed with the major pop icons of the time such as Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and the Spice Girls. However, due to my parent’s influences, I also grew up listening to and becoming enamored by artists like Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Whitney Houston and The Beatles. I definitely drew inspiration from those artists who had both a vocal and storytelling perspective. During my adolescence, I started to become more influenced by pop/rock bands like Paramore, Rise Against and Jimmy Eat World, which definitely helped shape my musical style at the time and led me to fronting 2 pop/rock bands.

Although these styles had a dominant focus during different times of my life, I have never boxed myself in with a particular genre. My playlists can be wildly unpredictable, playing everything from Hip Hop to Classical music. I feel that my love for diverse music has ultimately helped shape my style in such a way that I often don’t write a song with the intention of following a strict genre guideline, but instead simply create something that I enjoy, and hope that others will too. I think that’s why I have always been such a huge fan of the band Queen – they never let anyone box them into a straight-line genre, they just created music that they loved.

TCS: For the benefit of those who may not be too familiar with Kassie K. or your musical career, please share with us how you started out in Vancouver, BC, Canada and eventually became a solo recording artist and songwriter?

KK: I have always had a passion for music and songwriting and have been performing ever since I was very young. I started performing at the age of 5 performing in local festivals and showcases. By the age of 11, I started writing my own songs. When I was in high school, I started learning guitar and joined my first band – an all-female pop/rock trio. Unfortunately, we only played a few shows before separating. Later on, during my senior year I joined Bell Tower Dreams, a pop/rock band out of Vancouver, BC, Canada as their lead singer/songwriter. We released 2 physical albums and won a Band of the Month contest with a prominent local radio station, earning radio play and headlining a showcase.

Being so young, I remember having to get a fake ID just so that I could perform in the bars around town. After several years of success, we eventually decided to part ways due to musical differences. Although leaving the band was an extremely difficult decision, it was important for me at that time to follow my heart musically and go back to my roots as a pop artist. Being on my own has afforded me the opportunity to collaborate with so many artists and producers across the world. Equally, it has allowed me to create and release music I love while also being able to play shows around Vancouver. I am extremely excited for everything I am currently doing musically and cannot wait to share what I have been working on with everyone.

TPC: How would you describe your overall sound and musical genre?

KK: I feel like my style is always evolving so I always have such a hard time answering this question. In today’s age of music, artists don’t have the same pressure to stick so closely to one genre or style anymore. Current music is continuing to create new subgenres which I feel is amazing, as it creates more variance, moods and diversity within a specific genre. I’m definitely inspired by new things every day, so trying to fit myself into a box in which I have to stay the same all the time is just not me. Although my current music falls somewhere on the pop spectrum, I’ve created alternative rock, electro-pop, indie pop, country pop and electric dance music (EDM) tracks. I would definitely say that I am more focused on expressing the message behind my music rather than making music that fits within a certain genre.


TCS: Personally, one of my favorite tracks is your song called “Let Go,” could you describe the creative process behind the song as well as the in-studio music video concept?

KK: Thank you so much! This song was actually written several years ago but was never properly recorded until just recently. When I was writing the song, I had been going through a hard breakup and was experiencing a lot of mixed emotions. I was scared to let go of a relationship that I cared so deeply for, but at the same time it also caused so much pain and heartache. I think I was in love with something that “could” or “should” have been, and not what really was. Like all my music, my songs are an outlet for how I am feeling and what I am going through. It can be a bit personal, having my diary out on full display, but it’s always been how I’ve worked my way through things. This particular song was written on my couch with just a few simple chords on my guitar, which definitely kept the pop/rock vibes during production. The music video concept was simply a fun way to show my fans the creative process of being in studio. We actually filmed at the location where I primarily record and mix my songs so that place is like a second home to me.


TCS: What would you say is your motivation and muse when you write songs? Is there a specific formula that you follow?

KK: My muse for creating and writing new music is simply my life. All of my songs are very personal and have such a strong connection to either something I’ve gone through personally or witnessed from someone else. I’ve definitely had my share of heartbreaks and missteps, and like many people; I used to bottle up my emotions, which made it a lot harder to move forward. Writing music to me has always just been such a great way to express and put words to how I am feeling. It’s almost like finding comfort in some sort of musical closure. However, it’s important to note, that just because I write a sad song, it doesn’t mean that I’m still in that place currently. I am actually a pretty darn happy person! However, I don’t think anyone really forgets the feelings we once felt or the memories we’ve made in our past, and often those are the songs which are most raw and real, and yet therapeutic to create.

When it comes to writing a new song, I don’t really have a set formula. Sometimes I’ll just be driving in my car and a melody pops in my head, so I’ll use a recording app on my phone and just sing. I literally have THOUSANDS of voice notes on my phone and will listen back to them during a writing session and see if anything stands out and build off that. Sometimes I’ll create new music or melodies by just goofing around on my guitar or piano, while other times I’ll write lyrics over a pre-made beat or instrumental. Literally no song creation for me is the exact same. In fact, sometimes a song can take less than an hour to write completely, while others can take months and, in some cases, may never get finished.

TCS: Tell us about the background story behind “What Do You Want From Me”?

KK: This song is actually one of my own personal favorites because of how personal and honest it is. I’ve always been brutally honest in my lyrics, but I was never great at sharing this honesty – maybe for fear of judgement or unwanted sympathy, or maybe for people figuring out whom the song was about. This particular song was written about an ex right after we broke up. We had broken up and gotten back together a couple times – and there was always this hope that things would change. I wanted so badly for this person to come around and fix what was broken. The song for me was about the frustrations of being with someone I loved, but also feeling like I was in a state of delusive contentment, like I was stuck in a loop of being strung along, while also being deeply loved and relied upon. I had given so much of myself to the relationship, without getting the same in return. It was exhausting. The song itself, is about that longing for things to change, but when things finally do, it’s too late. The honesty behind the song, was that there actually was a change, but time had changed my point of view, and it didn’t matter anymore, it was too much to go back from and even though it hurt a lot at the time, I needed to let go, and I needed him to let me go too.


TCS: Could you describe for us one of the weirdest experiences you had during the course of your music career?

KK: I can’t say that I’ve had anything particularly weird happen, but my cats definitely start to freak the hell out whenever I start to sing – definitely hurts the feelings a little bit lol.

TCS: As a recording artist, how have you embraced social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube to market your songs, albums, merchandise and/or appearances?

KK: It’s honestly amazing how many social platforms we have now to connect with each other! Instagram has been a huge for reaching new fans and showcasing my music. With Facebook, people are only able to find you when they already know you, but with apps like Instagram and now Tik Tok, you are able to reach millions of people across the globe who can stumble across your content randomly, through related hashtags, or as a recommendation (or tag) from friends and content creators. You can interact with fans on a personal level and show them pieces of your everyday life and creative process through “IG Stories”, while also being introduced to so many other talented musicians. I actually recently released a song titled “Out of Sight” which was a collaboration project with Jameo, an EDM producer out of Los Angeles, California, who I originally connected with through Instagram.

 

YouTube has also been amazing so far for my career. Several years ago, I created fitness parody music video on YouTube, which I then simply shared to my own pages via Facebook. The video ended up going viral and was reposted on websites and other Facebook pages from Australia to Germany, acquiring over 12 million views worldwide. Due to the success of the parody, I released a follow up fitness parody the following year, which was also picked up and shared internationally, this time receiving notable media attention from websites like ESPN, People Magazine and Kiss Radio. It’s pretty cool that I still have fans who found me through my parodies and have continued to follow my musical journey and support me and my music. Aside from my parodies, YouTube has always been an amazing place to share and promote both cover songs and original music.

TCS: Can you describe for us the history behind your viral fitness parodies and the worldwide attention that they received with notable features by ESPN, People Magazine, CBC and Kiss Radio?

KK: The first fitness parody I created was honestly just the result of me wanting to put together a super simple and fun music video with my friends. I had been a gym rat for a while and when I heard Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” my mind instantly went to “All About Those Gains.” I was just messing around one day and ended up writing the entire song in one session and everything kind of just snowballed from there. I’ve always been really into comedy, and thanks to my dad I grew up listening to a lot of Weird Al Yankovic (he was actually my very first concert!) so writing and filming a fitness parody was totally up my alley.

 

I ended up releasing the music video for “All About Those Gains” on Reddit, Facebook and YouTube. Within about 2 weeks, the video went viral. Based on the success of the parody it led me to create another parody the following year. This time, I selected Mariah Carey’s classic holiday hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” changing the title to “All I Want For Christmas Is Gains,” which quickly gained international attention. It’s always funny how sometimes the simplest of videos can reap the biggest success. Both parodies were produced at no cost and were filmed primarily with an old iPhone using no tripods or fancy equipment and were edited on my computer through Windows Movie Maker.


TCS: If you weren’t in the music industry, what would you see yourself doing instead?

KK: Honestly, I am not really sure. Music has always been the one constant in my life. Currently, I am also working as a personal trainer and health coach, which I absolutely love. Gotta pay those bills! Fitness is so much more than just lifting weights and getting in shape, the biggest transformations come from within, and it’s amazing to get to be a part of someone else’s life journey. Moving into the health and fitness industry was a natural transition for me, not just because I was already active and had experience in psychology, but because it allowed me more freedom and time to pursue my music career. However, I would be lying if I didn’t say that my ultimate dream job is to work in an animal sanctuary petting lions all day.

TCS: What does the short and long-term future look like for Kassie K?

KK: Well I am really excited to announce my recent signing to Mi5 Recordings! Coming from Vancouver, BC this is such an amazing opportunity for me to work with some highly talented and experienced industry professionals – ultimately helping to take my music to the next level. In the short-term, I am looking forward to releasing a digital album and physical compilation of my previously released singles as well as some of my soon to be released tracks entitled Happy Never After. I have SO much going on right now, but I can honestly say that I’ve never been more excited and prouder of the music that I am creating. Long-term, I am really looking forward to working with Mi5 Recordings and enjoying the adventure.
