YOU HAVE TO SHOW THE WORLD YOUR WHEELHOUSE

  Please write it down again, especially the new folks: My choice of material speaks before I do. In this world of self-records, formerly known as “Self-tape”, but there’s been no tape for 30 years! My lighting speaks before I do. My background speaks before I do. Befor...
