Live recording from a great show in New Zealand, March 2016. Violet French and Mikey Summerfield played two powerful sets, Violet played though an earthquake with style. Lou Realand booked this whole mess. GOODBYES was written up the street from the venue with love for my dear Christchurch family in my heart and mind.

Thanks for your support!
I have a new full length release coming later this year <3
