"What Love Is" is a labor of love musical project that, in song, tells the common story of how a man and a woman discover the aspects of love and embark on a journey to living happily ever after - an ending that sometimes seems to be in the minority now more then ever was.
Inspired by the title track, the project developed over ten years and a few setbacks, but we're glad to finally bring it to you. We hope you enjoy it and thank you in advance for listening.
