Can you tell us a few things about your latest release?
‘Stay’ was originally titled ‘Home’ and was written for the musical ‘Armadia’. We realised it had alot of potential and hs r tweaked it ever since. Getting Rachel Jesuton on vocals was a huge honour for us. She has an angelic voice and has really given the track a soulful energy
