Ethereal Indie Pop Artist C. SHIROCK Unveils New Single: All We Have Is This Moment

“Never has this song felt more true – with so much uncertainty in the world, so much fear and so many questions, all we have is today. For me, this is a constant reminder to live fully wherever I am. I’ve wasted too many days living for some future that I don’t even know if it will come. It’s a song about learning to ‘live immediately.’ – a phrase from one of my favorite philosophers, Seneca.”
C. SHIROCK has received acclaim from the likes of LADYGUNN, American Songwriter, Earmilk, and PopDust.
