One standout track, “Cotton Candy Sky,” implores listeners to cherish the vibrant hues of the sky, offering a moment of reflection amidst life’s hustle.
In the studio, the recording process was peppered with fun and camaraderie, reflecting the infectious spirit of the music itself. Dr. Ew’s journey has been paved with trials and tribulations, culminating in “The Check-Up” – a testament to his enduring passion for the craft. This album is more than a musical endeavor; it’s a labor of love forged through the fires of dedication and perseverance.
