Timelines & Tragedies

Midwest Dilemma

When thinking about Timelines & Tragedies, it only feels right to start from the begining. The words, the music, played front to back. This recording tells a story of a journey from foriegn soil. Lifes decisions to stay or roam from state to state. The struggle of family and the necessity of love. From young to old, birth to death in song. I
When thinking about Timelines & Tragedies, it only feels right to start from the begining. The words, the music, played front to back. This recording tells a story of a journey from foriegn soil. Lifes decisions to stay or roam from state to state. The struggle of family and the necessity of love. From young to old, birth to death in song. I wanted this recording to end up exactly what it is. Perfect. Thanks to everyone involved in the making of this recording! Thanks to everyone that supports us along the way in what we are doing musically. Thank you! Justin Lamoureux
