Impossible to deny

This band is made up of musicians of the highest caliber. I am happy to be associated with them as professionals and as human beings. Whether or not they are the next big thing, this EP is simply impossible to deny as a piece of epic orchestral art. Andrew and I were fortunate enough to hear all these songs prior to them being recorded, over french toast and mimosas in my living room in Portland.
