It's filled with different styles of music: Pop, Easy Jazz, Broadway type songs, early Rock n Roll, a little R&B and a little Funk. It's a musical melting pot just like New York.

I love Madrugada, Leonard Cohen, Wovenhand, Nick Cave and more… and I wouldn’t be surprised if you find these inspirations in this new music.
