Mixed by the incomparable Chris Brown (Radiohead, Pink Floyd, etc).

No offense intended. :^)

What talent scouts Taxi.com said about The Light-Filled Corner:

"Incredibly well-written songs and emotionally captivating performances. I'm not sure I can put into words how much I appreciate what you've accomplished...you've got to be buried six feet under not to be moved by the captivating performances. Lyrically, you're working at an extremely high level. It's all so incredibly appealing. Really looking forward to hearing more!"

lyrics

The Grand Illusion
keeps us safe

The Grand Illusion
gives us shape

The Grand Illusion
keeps us warm

The Grand Illusion
gives life form

The Grand Illusion
It knows our name

The Grand Illusion
It feels our pain

The Grand Illusion
It keeps us going

The Grand Illusion
feels like growing

The Grand Illusion
It knows our way

The Grand Illusion
It has our say

The Grand Illusion
It knows our name

The Grand Illusion
takes aim ...
Take it

The Grand Illusion
of fear of forage

The Grand Illusion
of knowing and knowledge

The Grand Illusion
of debt and doubt

The Grand Illusion
let’s shout it out

The Grand Illusion
through which we’re flowing

The Grand Illusion
that keeps us owing

The Grand Illusion
of gain and foregoing

The Grand Illusion
is not worth knowing

[It is yours]

The Grand Illusion
It has your name

The Grand Illusion
controls the game

The Grand Illusion
It reaps what’s sewing

The Grand Illusion
cannot keep going

No
