W. o’ W.: Stacy Dillard

“Our purpose is to inform you that there’s the possibility that your mind could be closing! Music will show you, clearly, an open mind. If you accept that, it’ll show you that, it will give you that, it will open you up more.

Bogota

“I’m not saying music is the only way to salvation; it’s just one of the many highways that gets you where you need to go. But it’s definitely a way… We might not lead the way, but we’ll definitely make the way visible.”
