Review: The quintet members bring their own walks of life and perspectives, contributing to the depth and meaning of this project. The songs portray the way we often deal with change and how music can become the light in our times of darkness. Candice’s ability to deliver the song with meaning and character, along with the support of the band, results in a piece of work that relates to the ongoing obstacles in life, while finding the light that leads “Your Way”.
