That’s reflected in all of Souliere’s music, but perhaps never as personally and intimately as on ‘Touch & Go’ – a compact, ‘one listen and it’s stuck in your head,’ track co-written and recorded remotely by Souliere and producer, Giordan Postorino. Shayla has accumulated over 100k followers across her social media. Put bluntly, Souliere gets things done.
