Where would music be if it wasn't for amazing people like you that get off your back and make music and play never quite knowing if you could make a living or not – it’s quite frankly awe inspiring. You invest so much time and energy to create such beautiful music that effects us all so powerfully, helps us all in good and bad times. Don't ever underestimate how much we give a shit about all that time spent. Not just the playing of music either but the getting there, the lugging kit about, those late nights of not being able to drink and let go at a fun event - because you've got a long journey home, the facing of uncertain careers. It's not easy to make a living and we just want to say that we think of all this we salut you! Thank you! Please music lovers, buy the music they make to help them keep making it!!!
