    Hi. I'm young singer-songwriter living in Poland. I really don't want to write all the shit 'bout how I love music and that I want to be able to continue making it. I just want YOU to listen to my stuff if you have some spare time. It's just a couple of minutes for you but something more for me. Thanks! https://soundcloud.com/stevanblack

    i often wonder why r&b is the one genre of music never developed by the british but much of it is called mod i guess apparently. ive just overlooked it cuz when i heared the term 'mod' not knowing what it meant i didnt associate it with r&b. now i do.
