Axton continues, “Although I’m relatively new to the Los Angeles music scene, I’m not new to the life of a musician, and I’ve seen what ingredients it takes to create a truly organic music scene. And I can tell you that in Los Angeles it’s bubbling below the surface right now. In this strange semi-post covid atmosphere there is a unique energy, the artists support each other and everyone’s creative play is stimulated. With a real emphasis on originality, especially in the American Eastside scene, I’m just happy to be able to add a few ingredients to this strange brew.
