[su_quote]This album is for everyone, Christian, Jew, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, anyone who follows the Star, the quest for Light and the Brotherhood of Man,” Stephen Melillo tells P&P. “And, as you’ll hear, it’s not all serious. Some marketer might say, ‘You can’t have such a wide range of contrasts in emotions and dynamics! You need to find a niche!’ Instead, relish the story, face the joy and the hurt and the daring and the adventure and the humor, the spectacle and the visions that your mind conjures. It’s for all of us, not the niche.[/su_quote]
