The studio session time, has been paid for, to record the first two songs “I Believe” and “It’s Been A Long Time”. I believe is a soulful, Sophisti Pop love song, that echoes the universal experience, of uncertainty in a romantic relationship, where one person is not yet convinced the other person really loves them. “It’s Been A Long Time”, is a song about long lost love, that has a chance to be rekindled, once again.
