Charlotte to Seattle newcomer John Alex Harper delivers us his new single 'Egoic Era', an Ntourage produced track about moving away from the parts of life that are fueled by the ego. The new track comes just 1 month after the release of John's first solo project titled 'Artwork by Funktional People.'
"I wrote this song the night before I moved to Seattle from Charlotte. The song is about letting go of any doubts or fear-based thoughts I was having.
