I collaborated with fellow Berklee student VALNTN, (Valentin Fritz), in July 2016 to create this track in the comfort of his Boston Apartment. Released in late October 2016, Can’t Let Go debuted at #18 (Germany) and #45 (USA) on the iTunes Electronic Chart, and just hit 3 million plays on Spotify this February. It has been placed under the Spotify Top 50 Viral charts of the US, Germany, Canada, Estonia, Bulgaria, Belgium, Australia , Switzerland, Sweden, and Turkey. Our track has also appeared on a variety of popular spotify playlists, currently holding the #1 spot on their “Pop Chillout” playlist.
I was invited to perform at the "2016 International Youth Congress for Peace" conference in Lebanon, sponsored by the University of Lebanon. Fellow Berklee student, Andrew Andraos, along with a band of 16 other Berklee students and I practiced from May- August 2016 in preparation to perform at world renowned venue "Casino Du Liban" for an audience of over a thousand people gathered from around the world. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our flights the day before the event due to an illegal withdrawal of sponsorship from one of our sponsors, so the band was unable to accompany Andrew at the live event. Regardless, it was a beautiful experience.
