‘Dreamers’ is also another song of encouragement, consciously rendered by the guitarist Eri. preaching a little bit of faith would help you go a long way.
Eri is clearly passionate about bringing healing to souls and spirits as he brings to bear yet again in ‘Nobody’ that features Logan. Eri teaches patience and endurance among other things on this song.
In ‘Starlight’, Eri gives off vibes of love in all its beautiful shape and beauty.
‘Someone like me’ featuring The Jay Vocal Ensemble is a beautiful expression by Eri who is in awe of the love God has shown him. The backup background vocals of the song complementing Eri’s voice makes the song really amazing, this not taking away the essence of the song.
