There are at least 3 artists called The Left. 1. While everyone else merges and follows the traffic jam on that nicely paved 4-lane highway to the right, you’ll always have those few who prefer to follow that narrow, unpaved road to The Left, curious to see where it leads. In this case, The Left leads you straight to Detroit. The Left began as a simple phone conversation between two artists displaying mutual respect for each other’s craft.
