“Meant To Survive” is Hendricks’ second EP, following the successful release of his first EP, “Noise,” the title track of which was chosen as the 2011-2012 season theme song for the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes and Florida Panthers in addition to being featured at the Louvre Museum in Paris.
“I am excited about the release of this new EP and for the chance to celebrate its launch with friends, fans and other very talented musicians,” said Hendricks. “When we recorded our first EP, I had been performing and writing songs for less than a year and was still working to find my own unique sound. This new album is the reflection of a great deal of work and represents the sound I have been searching for personally since I began playing music. It is so exciting and rewarding to finally get to share it with everyone.”
