Maraschino – True Lover

MARASCHINO

L.A.'s Piper Kaplan -- formerly of the great Pearl Harbour / Puro Instinct -- shares the infectious first single from her long-awaited new solo project Maraschino.

Listen below, and help support Maraschino's first-ever North American tour opening for Drugdealer here.
