FRESH FRIDAY FINDS: The Local Edition

This week, we’re keeping it local as there’s some great things happening around Newy that we think you should know about (if you don’t already).

A few great local bands have released new music, Mother’s Day special collaboration, more live streams we’re loving, how to get involved with From A Distance Sessions and how some of Newy’s favourite businesses are spreading kindness in a time of need.

Check out some of our Fresh Friday Finds below.

The boys are going from strength to strength and here at EAO, we’re loving their tunes and have them on high rotation at the office.
