Connell Cruise, musician

I am proud to be part of a growing music industry and culture in this country where often times you can't tell the difference. It is great to be on equal standing with everyone around the world. The way the industry works nowadays, the way music is put out there for people to listen to. It gives everyone a shot to make it.
