Album „Lines In the Sand“ is about the immigrant experience. Not about immigrants like Antonio, who arrived from Mexico City to the US legally to pursue his dreams, but about the immigrant who was less fortunate. The ones that were forced to flee home out of fear, persecution, war and famine. This is about the kind of immigrant who is constantly being demonized, ostracized and politicized by a powerful few in the name of a misguided nationalism. That is quickly eroding a fundamental quality in human beings: the capacity for feeling love for people that look different than we do and empathy for people that are less fortunate than we are. This album is about them and their journey.
