“Thank God I’m alive.” – There’s a certain magic that occurs when a lyricist connects with a like-minded producer. The combination of the two creates a greater whole. This whole evolved into a collaborative project entitled Medulla Oblongata.

“Haunt The Streets, ” the first single off  Kevin SinatraVirtuosoTheGod‘s upcoming project, gives listeners a message of who Kevin Sinatra is and drops some gems in the process. Their earlier track, “Crystal Children,” still jams.
