Two of my best friends, Cameron and Trevor Bartlett, along with the talented Erik Moody, make up a band called Author. They make beautiful music paired with real lyricism - struggles, problems, emotions - things you can relate with.
They recently released a full length titled Of Brighter Days and are set to release their next full length this fall.
Check out their music and if you dig it, give a few bucks. Let's be real - you're saving hundreds with your Spotify subscription so the least you can do is spare some cash for the striving musician.
