Neil Salter - To the Girl Upstairs
Hey, I'm Neil. This is going to be really simple. I want to pack a room (any size) with people who want to jump and sweat and swoon and laugh and cry and scream and fall in love with the sound of a dream. I want to take music back to just getting friends together, having some drinks and putting their hearts out in the open for everyone to see.
