When people think of Chicago’s Southside, they typically reference only violence and tragedy, which too often overshadows its beautiful cultural history. This collection of original compositions reflects my attempt to pay homage to this lively artistic, cultural heritage along with some of Chicago’s best musicians.
Now available on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon.
