This album is a collection of songs written over the last few years directly on staff paper without any instrument. I thought of titling the album "Fluff" because the compositions seemed light and fluffy. But in fact each composition is inspired by a different spirit - some gone, some still here. Thus, "Hearts Of Light".
The fun and adventure really began when assembling this quintet for rehearsals and the recording date. And so, special thanks to John, Derek, Richard, and Sky. And thanks to Valarie for the brilliant engineering and hosting his space. And thanks again to Richard for not only being a dream drummer but also a mixing and mastering genius. And thanks to everyone who helps support our art.
