This affects my songs, when writing, I often considering the present mode, environment, past experiences and imaginations. I grew up loving everything about entertainment, and was once in a group where we do music together and attended shows.
I have been recording songs and doing collaborations, and currently working on a new project, which is going to blow your mind. It is packed with good content, a motivational and inspirational song, i practically poured out my heart in this track.
