We have all heard the negativity, "Rock is dead. There are no REAL musicians anymore." These attitudes are defeatist in nature, oversimplifying, or worse, IGNORING the passionate musicians that cross just below the radar every day. It is our goal, to counter that idea. We create music, not just for us, not for YOU, but for everyone who will ever have a chance to listen to a song and let it move them. To get those goosebumps across their neck as the guitar solo comes to a crescendo. We want to make music that moves, enlightens, and inspires. That motivates ALL of us to dream and feel again. We want to share this passion and this journey with YOU, the music lover. The hopeless romantic. The dreamers and the night-time philosophers.
We wish we could do this on our own, as a gift to all of you and prove that passion alone is enough to make it. Sadly, that is not the case. We, like you, have been homeless, loveless, loved, hated, struggled and conquered, but we need YOUR HELP to achieve this dream. We are not rich, but we are rich in company and passion, and our hearts beat with a love of music. There are still plenty of great bands out there, but all of us need YOU to hear us and help us be heard. - Michael Medina (Vocalist)
