[ Wez Comments from Wez Atlas ]
My 2nd mini-album “This Too Shall Pass” is finally out!! This was another very personal project for me following Chicken Soup For One, and it feels like a good ending to that chapter of my life. I struggled, lamented, and overcame. I feel ready now to take on the next chapter. Life’s a game, Ima get up and play it!!!
