"This stunning, strong, big, passionate front man erupted like lava into the theatrical stage sharing his soul and artistic expression with this blessed crowd. His presence raised each single hair of my body as I realized that life could be lived at a frequency higher than the one I knew of: this special creature embodied something amazing I had never experienced before. He looked like the most perfect marble, male sculpture of a Greek wise philosopher that all of a sudden started moving like the most talented Rock Star. The depth of his voice and weight of his words communicated to me at extraordinary levels. As his glance would scan through the audience and pass through me, I would shiver like a baby leaf to the first warm spring breeze. That was only the first song..."
- Francesca G.
