In September of 2008, Focus… & Fokis released an EP called 20/20. It was a classic project that left the listeners craving for more from the duo. 5 years later they have decided to release a retail version of the project as an official LP with some new songs. “Focus… & I have been working on a new project that we are looking to release later this year. We had some extra songs laying around that are not going on the new project so I said, lets package them up with the 20/20 EP, make it a Full Album and release for retail. He thought it was a good idea so we went with it. I love working with my brother Focus… He and I have a great chemistry when it comes to creating music but we are also great friends who get together with our families over dinner and hangout as well”. – Fokis
