Music and Art - One perpetually inspires the other. As I've worked on this album over the past four years, I've been inspired by my father's beautiful award winning landscape photography. In some instances, the art drove me to write a particular song. And in others, the music came first and inspired the photograph. Much like how a soundtrack accompanies a film to evoke an emotional response from the viewer - the music of this album accompanies a series of breathtaking photographs taken from the Pacific Northwest down to the California coastline. Illumination is all about light, empowerment, and goodness. The camera is an instrument created by mankind that physically captures light. The music and art in this album spans the time of one day - beginning with dreams, and ending with the fiery sunset and the evening stars. - Jennifer 'Thomas has the golden touch, or better yet the "Thomidas" touch, so much so that Illumination is crying big record label deal. And if not a major label deal then let's label it right now in the middle of June as potential Album of The Year. It is nothing short of being breathtakingly brilliant!
