released 01 November 2011
In 2011, SBYF Founder Matthew Ross Smith collaborated with Philly-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Steve Schaller to create The Postcards EP. Each of the songs began as a simple anecdote or lyric scribbled down on an old receipt or napkin while traveling, passing out postcards (thus the name). Many other songs blew out the window, leaving just these five. You can choose your own price (including free) and 100% of all proceeds will go to support SBYF Memory Writing Programs. Thanks & enjoy!
