Gundelach album

Anyone willing to own up to their struggles with depression is worthy of our praise. In a world that pays such a huge premium on happiness, people tend to keep quiet about such things. That’s why we need more artists like Gundelach around. This Norwegian musician/producer is using his musical platform to tell the story […]
