Q – “Stereo Driver” Single

South Florida singer and songwriter Q released his latest song “Stereo Driver” recently (along with a fantastic music video).

You may know Q from last years song “Take Me Where Your Heart Is” which has racked up over 63 Million Listens on Spotify!

Q just finished a European Tour & is someone to watch when he does his next Irish shows, he sold out his UK show with over 800 people in attendance & is an unbelievable performer. “Stereo Driver” sounds like an 80s song mixed in with a bit of Prince & Michael Jackson.

Have a look at the music video with the link below.
