Nostalgia 99 is our latest single which was released on 22nd April 2021.Nostalgia can be a safe space for him, while dealing with anxiety. But chasing that past, and avoiding his feelings complicates his present relationships with loved ones and friends. Can he learn to run to his feeling instead of from it?

Tough on Tobacco
Tough on Tobacco is singer-songwriter Sidd Coutto’s talent packed, genre bending, convention defying, wildly funny, brand new live act. The music is a mélange of pop, rock and reggae. ‘Tough on Tobacco’ is an anti-tobacco message. Don’t start smoking!
It’s hard to quit once you start. And it’s just not worth it. If even one young adult says no to tobacco because they heard us, we’ll be justified in our cause. The gigs are fun. The jokes are stupid. The music is easy. It’s time to get Tough on Tobacco.
