"To me, this album represents all walks of life and the everyday people living in it," explains Fokis. "Putting this album together was a lot of fun and a great experience utilizing technology to make it happen." -
Not a group but more of a collective of rotating members, Local-Mu12 was founded by Fokis in 2012. It stands for Local Musicians United 12 (2012, the year it was established) and is a brotherhood forged on the foundation of working as a team. The idea was to pool their resources together and move forward collectively. With members spanning from all over the world, it's safe to say they cover a lot of ground.
