Ian Santillano speaks for us all in “Wanna Go Outside Again”
I mean, who is not feeling that title? Hayward's Ian Santillano and his guitar have dropped a song that sums up our Shutdown II blues: "Wanna Go Outside Again." https://www.youtube.com/embed/myEBWqkq-Lo It's just a little bit bittersweet, which I think is how this world feels for a lot of us. If you're reading this in time, he's going to host a listening party on Twitch tonight.
East Bay singer-songer Ian Santillano is “Cooped Up”
We're on day... what now, of quarantine? By Ian Santillano's count, it's around 23,102 and just like his new song, it's getting harder to shake this feeling he frames in, "Cooped Up". Funky and forward one moment, then dark and vulnerable the next, Santillano captures the rollercoaster of these times. Creating is catharsis for a lot of people right now, especially for this multi-instrumentalist from Hayward as he ruminates on the physical trappings now taking hold of his mental. There still aren't many answers but until we can break free, Santillano is here to soothe the days away.
