There's something liberating when you hear
a song that moves you. It's a
sort of drug for some like myself. I am constantly on the search for music
that hits me deep down inside. It's always a victory when I find an album

Telecast and The Followers.
He has moved into the genre of electro pop, with a product that is sure to

of electronica. It's a welcomed effort that's worthy of being one
of the top
albums released this year.
