As a student of great music I am always pleased when I’m granted a late pass. I wanted to give major props over on Twitter to @KaiulaniHill for putting the GFM Family on to this great music and granting that late pass. Right now I’m going to let the color commentary go and just let the music and the messengers speak for themselves. Yes Virginia, people still do make real music.
