Sometimes you meet someone and you know; we will be friends and we should work together. This happend to us, December 2019 in London. We connected, he made great music and I worked in music. As a match made in heaven, or at least that is where we are aiming for, started working together in the beginning of the crazy year of 2020.
This year we are doing some cool stuff, next year will even be better! Give Daniel a follow on the socials or stay update on: http://www.danielhjalmtysson.com
