His name was Jake and he was my brother.I wasn't there at the time, but based on what I know from conversations with the people that were there, me and Oscar Corney Music (Who was one of his best mates) have written this, from his perspective about that night."I  believe that sometimes' we're led to places and social media pages for a reason, and the reason in this instance was an artist by the name of Taylor Mayd .
