Seasons Volume 1 Album Review

1. Your fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of your latest offering, what makes this album different from your previous ones?

What makes every album different is simply that we’re different. We make music based on our personal and communal journeys with God, which is progressive and ever changing, so naturally what we sing about and write about reflects that. And it’s never the same.

2. This is your 4th album, what has been most rewarding about this journey?

It’s always rewarding doing something TOGETHER. It’s a beautiful thing celebrating accomplishing something as a team. The reward is seeing different people banding together , laying things aside and committing towards a cause or purpose greater than themselves.

3. What we love most about WWW is you always bring New Songs, what is the continual inspiration to always come up with new songs?

As faith based songwriters we have an unfair advantage as we have the bible as a reference, which in and of itself is an endless source of inspiration. We try stick to what we know to be real and true in a world that is ever-changing and trying to define us.
