1. Troi Irons release live performance video

Troi Irons shared a live performance of “Strangers.” “This ‘Strangers’ video is my first visual apart from a major label,” Irons says. “There are a couple [of] music videos up that I spent weeks writing treatments/storyboards for and building teams for, only to have a director come and paint over my vision because my name wasn’t on the check paying them. For this video, I wanted to peel it back to the very basics and build a good foundation. This is me in true, raw form as a musician.” The single is available to stream here.
