    Hi guys, I'm really not into this kind of practice but i would really like to ask you for checking out first single from my upcoming debut album on my youtube channel. I'm young singer-songwriter and I really want to be able to continue making what makes me most happy - and that is music. So if you have some time, please feel free to rate and comment on that song of mine. It will mean a lot to me : )
