Shelby Lyn:

What started the EP of Seasons?

So Durand:

So, the whole Seasons EP was written in a somewhat more “triste”
time in my life. I had just been laid off; I recently had to
relocate my life, had gone through a break up, and was losing
touch with friends. Everything hit me at once due to lack of time
and commitment. In other words, I guess I was over committing
myself to music.

It was a very moody time. I had weird emotions, I don’t know if
it was stress or a life change but I was also feeling a huge risk
releasing my first EP with a different sound than expected from
me.

CASHTRO CROSBY – A Million Fans

Cashtro Crosby is finally back with the unexpected release of his highly anticipated follow-up– and it’s a double disc! “A Million Fans: Gin & Furr” was created in the true classical mixtape form, showcasing his eager return and worthy rise over some of his favorite songs/beats throughout the years.  With his bars top notch on songs like “Dirty Skreetz,” the beats literally undeniable such as “Black Jesus,” and the mood-battle between “turnt up” and “laid back,”  you’ll have no choice but to play it from top to bottom (both).

They say the strongest come out fighting, and it looks like 2014 is set to be the year of show and prove for the Pittsburgh-native/Ottawa-adoptee. Cashtro Crosby’s return is the first taste of much to come in the new year.
Consider this a special treat!
