You do not meet many people like Hannah. Incredibly talented, but equally gracious and kind. We had the privilege to work on this tune Make Your Move in 2019.

Little things is a song written by Eric Toomer describing the speed at which life often moves. We knew there would be, for lack of better words, a delicacy to the song and the production.

This is a song from the 3rd project we helped Thomas with, Don’t Need A Map
