Hey guys, I just released a new version of my new song Runaway. I changed the arrangement and worked with a new producer (Chris Banks) and a familiar face (Byron Long - Fuse) to finish and release Runaway Mach II. I am excited at the end result. I think this song may be the best I've ever done and the first song that sounds exactly how I envisioned it sounding in my head. So please feel free to sample as much as you like. Rock On!
