I'm pretty excited for that Lion in the Mane album to come out that you posted about earlier today. Sounds a lot like AJ Perdomo from the Dangerous Summer, right?

Hey Ryan,

Just shoot us an email at info@valisemusic.com

Also, side note, we were all really excited about the review you wrote for the show at The Loft. We're really glad you enjoyed our set and the show in general. I read some more of your articles here on AP. Really great stuff!
