Looking forward to getting started on another original project with these guys (@poli_rhythms & @sfrguitar). I’ve been working with them in various bands for quite a while, but it never gets old. Whether on the stage or in the studio, I’m a better musician when I’m trying to keep up with them, and we always have a few laughs along the way.
