will be releasing
The Pioneer Sessions
on January 21st. The collection will be made up of stripped down versions of songs from his three EPs that were released this year.
Message from WilliamAfter releasing my EP trilogy and performing them live all year long, I wanted to jump into the studio and record raw, genuinely stripped down versions of each song.

Message from WilliamThis one is going to be fun... In high school I started writing songs under the name “Remember Maine”.
