Drawings, Stories and Lyrics
Never Sleep is about “Finding the Dream.” The music documents our first year of rediscovering who we had become, unraveling the past, and developing new common ground, yet not knowing where the path would lead. We invite you to join us on this journey of self and partnered discovery. We offer this music and accompanying narrative as artistic disclosure. We hope that our story inspires you to find your own reflective moments and sparks of discovery within.
This musical story is dedicated to Patricia Barry Ryley. She has generously and openly dreamed with us, offered boundless energy and creative collaboration, and extended tireless participation as we have pursued our vision.
