  • Like Sharks On Blood

    "Like Sharks On Blood" is an eleven song album that was written & recorded in Winter Park, Florida. The sound is a mix of many influences ranging from Motown to The Beatles, creating a unique listening experience. The central focus is lyrical content, however the music is saturated in creative arrangements and interesting recording techniques. Pulling from life experiences and observations, this music is both honest and fun. The songs have a whimsical feel to them, partly by design and partly because it was written & recorded in just 29 days! The artwork is a collaborative effort from Jeremy Robinson, Jessica Friend & Frank Friend. "Like Sharks On Blood" is available now!

    on iTunes.

    on Bandcamp.
