Single Review: “Mona Lisa” – Daniel Etherton

Daniel came to me as a recommendation from Neil March, Daniel sent me this track for my show and I must say… I’m impressed.  This song combines two of Daniel’s passions – music and fine art, as he is an art historian by day and musician by night.  The imagery in the lyrics are clear, …
