This album was inspired by the loss of my son in the summer of 2017. I began finding many feathers shortly before and after his death. Finding a feather is a message from the spirit world. To me it represents a comforting and loving spirit walking with you along your path, and that's why they are on the cover. The album begins and ends with songs directly related to my son "Wake Up Call" and "Without You". In between there are songs about life, it's meaning, understanding, and love.
I had been trying to make a record for the last few years but for some reason, the inspiration & creativity I needed just wasn't there. I had written 3 or 4 songs in that time. However since the death of my son, I wrote about 10 songs in a month! So I coupled them together with those other songs and this album was born! I thank God for blessing me with the ability to receive the gift music through my Spirit Guide who has been with me through this process. I thank my family for their support, my parents, brothers & sisters, my wife Richelle, & son Kameron. This album is dedicated to the memory of my son Josiah 'Joe' Sparks. I still think of you every day! I trust and believe you are in the care of our Heavenly Father and enjoying your new life on the other side. Until we meet again...
