Over the ten sublime tracks you are treated to an elegant yet powerful voyage through oceans, relationships and heartbreak powered by determination, strength and growth. Lyrically and musically you follow Wicklund through a story of discovery and it’s an enchanting tale to absorb.

Wicklund is complemented by the immense musical talents of both Kiszka and bandmate Daniel Wagner on ‘The Prize’ and they certainly help to elevate the majesty of the album. It must be said though that it’s Wicklund’s truly supreme performance that ensures that the record captivates as it does.
