I recently had the chance to record over a new track sent to me by Darryl Burke of Honest Music DC and Trane Trax Productions. The track inspired me to write some lyrics in regards to the current issues going on today.
It’s been a while since I have recorded but this was a good time. I got together with Greg Ward of Zion Gates rec. studio in my hometown Harrisonburg,Va. and we laid down a quick demo to send back up to DC.
We’re not quite sure yet what the final track will be we distribute, currently we are remixing it to different ideas but we won’t keep you waiting for long! The words are good to be heard!
Stay tuned for more from iRon Lion World & Zion Gates as we plan to put in alot of work!
The forthcoming single will be distributed through CD Baby or Zojak and available on all platforms!
