Wanna Hear My Students?

I talked a lot about my students this semester. WANNA HEAR ‘EM? They put a Soundcloud page together and several students uploaded some of their work.

BUY IT ON ITUNES: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/mike-errico/id3567281 What’s next watches from the sidewalk as the stars align What’s next throws pebbles at the window when the time is right I guess it’s better here than where I’ve been But who can say if that’s coincidence All I can say is that at least I’m free Learning to live with you living without me What’s next is sketched out in a notebook and thrown away What’s next is what I just walked in with yesterday I guess it’s better here than where I’ve been But who can say if that’s coincidence I just keep working ’cause that’s all I know And I’ll scratch this itch until I can see the bone On “All In,” by Mike Errico Tune in for music, shows, announcements, giveaways, videos and all that stuff, here: Facebook || Twitter || YouTube || Bandcamp || Pandora Tallboy 7, Inc.
