Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Those UNFORGETTABLE Music Memories!

Even though there were no new releases on this day doesn't mean there are no music memories. Before a song is released it has to be recorded, sometimes multiple times, sometimes in multiple sessions. The recording process is much more than pressing a start button, singing your heart out, and pressing a stop button.
