“I’ve Been Trying” (Download Track HERE)is the first single from my upcoming record “Specnology”, Jeff Spec will l be releasing mid-late September. The track, produced by Impossible Nothing, is just a reflection on the everyday details of life and some of the things he’s been going through since the Sneakerboxxx record. This song is one that most people will be able to relate to, and that jeff isn’t holding too much back on this one. The video is one shot and one take, shot by Jenkin Au from Justalilhype.com, and is meant to reflect the overall vulnerability of the song.
