Mobley’s latest project, Fresh Lies Vol. 1, is the beginning of a long, personal journey to be released April 27th.

After climbing back into my friend’s very tightly-packed sedan, she drove downtown, and I climbed out onto the seventh street sidewalk, strapped to the gills with equipment in preparation for MCG’s Outside release party.
