"Nothin’ Left to Lose" was written, produced and and performed by Lea. This powerful track is a gritty, raw tale of downing out, hitting rock bottom and bouncing back. The song takes the listener on an emotional journey from hopelessness to victor. - recorded at Scott Lea Productions studio in NJ and mastered at MasterDisk NYC by Roger Lian (Rush, Gene Simmons, The White Stripes, Muse).
