Taking advantage while the iron is still hot, he has shared his latest offering called Let Her Say, a piece that is a delight to listen to due to its many remarkable features.

Cleverly depicting Greece as both a country and a female figure, the songwriting on this piece is as mesmerizing as its well-rounded arrangements, metaphorically illustrating Laertis’s one-sided confrontation with his native land.
