"I started thinking about making music that was really intentional about reaching people on a spiritual level. I wanted to come right out and speak about God and my relationship with Him."

As he was pursuing his professional dreams, Bremnes' faced the tragic news that his mother was killed in a car accident. An event that truly turned his life upside down, there was no better way to honor his mother's memory than by throwing himself wholeheartedly into music.
