Where does this door go

I`m currently hooked with Mayer Hawthorne`s new album, “Where Does This Door Go.” Last year, I had the pleasure of participating in his music video for “No Strings” and I’ve been listening to his music ever since.

Plus, it was apparent what kind … Continue Reading

Yuki A. Music

Her performance included an eclectic mix of covers and originals, including a song dedicated to her fiance 🙂 What a great performance! The combination of her vocals, guitar and piano playing are beyond amazing. And props to her talented … Continue Reading
