First/Last-Can’t Help It

March 31, 2015

“Stephen came up with the idea to do an acoustic project, to record some songs and play some shows. And save the world of course.The goal is to connect with others through music and entertain people at concerts.”

Can’t Help It is the stage name for indie-acoustic songwriter Stephen Rubinosky from New Brighton, PA who, while still in high school, is doing it himself and making music. Kudos, bro! I want to thank him for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.
