 “Words [have] the power to move and inspire; the power to reframe thought; the power to change lives. But when we step on that stage, those have never been our goals.  We don’t “aim” to make someone feel something. Our job - our only job - is to tell a story wrapped in music and let everything fall as they may. Sometimes these stories are full of joy and exuberance. Sometimes they’re full of heartbreak and sadness. Sometimes they’re pretty. Sometimes they’re ugly. But no matter what, it will always be beautiful.”   ~ Asia Samson
