Jasper Chance


I have written over 100, maybe 200 songs but have never done much about it except for a handfull of demos. People like what I come up with and that is why I think I should let more people know. Here I am on Drooble! Also on Tube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1PZ0FsSLMzrwvQS5CBsTjw?view_as=subscriber
