We sing - kutcha edwards
Months ago, myself and a multitude of other singers (including many from Gippsland’s Mass Online Band) were asked to sing as part of Kutcha’s choir on this song and then keep it secret... Man, the keeping it secret bit was hard, but oh so worth it!
Massive congratulations to Kutcha, the band and everyone else involved - engineer Andy Stewart from The Mill and Luke McNee from Seagrass Films for the cool clip.
