Bassist Alexander Claffy is set to release his second EP in October, filled with the continued notions of melding jazz, R&B, rock, and other genres into the potpourri of our day. For example, what better example of this than covering a Beatles tune. Claffy just dropped his take on the classic “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” featuring Sonny Step on vocals and Ben Eunson on guitar. Check it out below and be on the lookout for Claffy’s sophomore EP this fall.
