"The Light" is a musical journey comprised of 13 tracks, each crafted and put in place with purpose to complete the the listener's trip along the arc of the album.
The final album is a powerful emotional journey through a complex musical landscape that bridges rock, classical, and environmental music - a truly unique work that reflects the complexity of life, death, suffering, and hope. It mirrors the complexity that resides within the soul of an artist struggling creatively and physically with the largest of questions.
