New single – “Doin’ What I Love”

New single – “Doin’ What I Love”

We’ve been working with Philadelphia producer Steve McKie on our next album (yes, a new LP!) and are really excited to share with you all the first single, “Doin’ What I Love.” We wrote this song over the course of 48 hours while visiting Panama with Pierce’s Beat Making Lab. It’s about, well, what the title says. Next up is a music video, and there’s still time for you to be a part of it!

Without further ado – listen to Doin’ What I Love and let us know what you think!
