Of what inspired his performances on the album, Jens Ludwig says: “The songs were all the inspiration I needed. “True North” and “Lunar Waters” were the first songs I heard and they made me wanna participate immediately! In the end, I really felt like I had a great connection with everyone involved, especially with Alessandro [Del Vecchio]. Didn’t need much more. Right time, right place, right songs, right team… it just felt “right” to be a part of it. And it’s been about time for me.

Vocalist Nuno Fernandes continues: “My inspiration came from the compositions themselves, especially the vocal melodies, where from the first listen I could see that my voice would fit perfectly in all the songs. And this inspiration only grew with each song recorded. I was really moved during this process. Some lyrics also touched me a lot and helped to make my performance really real. Another strong point was the quality of the musicians involved, it really made my job a lot easier.
