I am excited to announce that my new single, Sandali, will be released on January 5, 2024. This latest instrumental project features a collaboration with musicians from Austin, TX, and Madrid, Spain. The dedication to creating music that is fresh, authentic, and deeply engaging will be something you won’t want to miss out on!
