‘It Don’t Hinder Me' is a song about being proud of where I come from. I went to a magnet school that united different sectors of Los Angeles county, everything from Pasadena to West LA to El Monte & more inland. The school mixed kids from different backgrounds. Back then I often saw myself as not being cool like the kids of screenwriters and stars. This song rebukes the idea that you have to come from glamour or money to be cool. My ‘beautiful’ & ‘cool’ version of LA is the immigrant household of my grandparents.

At their fun live shows, this upstate NY pop-punk duo is extremely energetic and super enthusiastic - lots of jumping and kicking by singer/guitarist Alex Luciano - she must have a spring for a spine. But more importantly, the songs are catchy. They also released a 7" in 2015 and a full-length coming out in 2017, Live video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=za979jCnlE4 Art Fin
