Tony: “Wonderwall” is one of my all time favorite songs and takes me back to a time when my friends and I were living with reckless abandon and blasting this song every chance we had. I’m also a big fan of Noel Gallagher’s songwriting so was honored to have the opportunity to record “Wonderwall” as my first cover song.”
