"Sunset Sessions was an unbelievable experience. Not only did my band and I get the opportunity to play in front of some incredible industry professionals, but we also got to sit in on panels, do interviews with fantastic publications, talk with our fellow artists and see their performances. Everyone there has a true passion for music, which is what makes Sunset Sessions so unique. I feel truly blessed to be a part of the Sunset Sessions family!"
