New Dream is a themed compilation about finding hope in the adversities and brokenness of our human condition. I Will Respond, for example, a song about September 11th, uses three verses to describe the experiences of three individuals who were directly impacted by the events of that day; namely, an investment banker located high up in one of the towers, a fireman who responded to the call of duty, and a Franciscan minister who took the place of Rev. Michael Judge, who perished at the site. The song finds redemption in the face of seeming hopelessness.
