Man has always looked to animals as metaphors of existence. The Butterfly, for instance, is a symbol of change from a caterpillar walking the earth, to it's cocoon stage wrapped in stillness within it's hard protective shell to it's final regal stage - the transcendent Butterfly soaring through the heavens. It is a living metaphor of the spiritual transformation human beings go through on the path of enlightenment. The inspiration behind this album was to create a chronicle of the path of the spirit through relationship, longing, sex, loss and merging into the Divine in a completely individualistic manner. We were open to use whatever genre called us to express ourselves (acoustic folk, ballads, RnB, Trip Hop, etc.) and sought to reflect the lessons learned on this journey called life. 'Free' and 'Restless' for instance were about the questioning and longing that ultimately occur in a relationship striving for authenticity, emotional honesty and integrity. The others..well, you just have to listen!! Anthony Williams has a wide variety of experience in the audio industry doing demos, films, and dance performances.
