    “Music is like chemistry. When you put different ingredients together you get different reactions, tones, colors, emotions. If you put the right pieces together, it might even explode. And I think that’s what we need right now. Music that explodes.” - Jonathan Seiberlich

    “Within the first 30 seconds of playing this tune, these words instantly appeared in mind, ‘More Love, More Life, More Hugs, More Light!’ In the midst of this revolutionary time in history, engulfed with so much frustration, anger and despair, my heart, like so many others, aches and at that moment just yearned out for more. More love, more life, more hugs, more light, more change, more understanding, more peace, more justice… Love is stronger than hate. And also our most powerful armor. I’ll be honest, I had no idea what I was going to say while walking up the steps to record this piece. I just wanted to speak from my heart, in a safe space. It’s always an honor to create with this crew, but this day was particularly special and therapeutic to be able to freely release myself. And for a few moments in time… we joined together to create, we were engulfed in love and all who passed by felt that energy and took some with them.“ - Breathless

    “Amelia Earhart is a song about rising above it all. I titled it #AmeliaEarhart as a metaphoric representation of someone who went above and beyond. The song has nothing to do with the person and everything to do with soaring above the things that weigh us down and finding our place in the sky. Like balancing in a high frequency cloud and maintaining that feeling and energy even when clouds get grey.” - @breathlessmusic
