“My whole philosophy of music is to build a spiritual unity in sound. If an audience becomes a part of that unity, if only for a few minutes, then I have accomplished what I have set out to do.

This is my way of sharing with others all the wonderful gifts that GOD has bestowed upon me. In my compositions, this unity is expressed through lyricism.

A melody that can be understood, felt and shared is a very powerful thing as is the sharing that we show in love for one another – a spiritual unity coming down from, and ascending up to the FATHER of LIGHTS who gives it continuously when you ask.”

– Artt Frank
