Andy Lund “We are all connected. There are strong powers that push and pull us down particular pathways. They initially draw us together and allow us to be re-connected. They are different for everyone. Maybe it’s faith, family, power, vision, or certain beliefs...for me it’s always been music. 

Music has been, and continues to be the biggest connector. I am very lucky to have met so many beautiful people, and experienced so much while on the musical pathway. Thanks to everyone who contributed both directly and indirectly to the sounds and images on this project. As time goes on and paths are further explored, it becomes more obvious. Indeed; it is a small world.”
