Kinsey: “Party of one is a collection of songs that I love and I am proud of. And I think as an artist, that’s the all I could really hope for in a release. I want to put out music that I would listen to, and I can honestly say that this EP is exactly that. I hope it brings people as much joy to listen to as it brought me to make it!”

Kinsey will be hosting his EP release show, playing the mainstage at Hotel Café on June 6th at 7pm. You can buy tickets here: https://www.hotelcafe.com/tickets/?s=events_view&id=9169
