Quotes

"Blaster Records truly believes in me, and that's really the greatest thing an artist could ask for in a label," says Lopez. "I'm very proud and excited to be working with Blaster, and the work we've done so far has felt very natural and very right. They are passionate about music and have made the songs that I've carried with me for my entire lifetime actually come to life."
"I'm afraid I might just be ramblin' now," he says. "But the point is, that everyone has influences around them, and music is a connection between concept and reality."
"Nobody lived life like Johnny Cash and nobody plays Johnny Cash like "Cash Is King"."
"A lot of the children we deal with come from the poorest ZIP codes in the county," Parker says. "It is to continue that philosophy of inclusiveness, that can-do spirit, to give children a warm and caring environment where their talents will be nurtured. Very few of them will go into the music industry, we also want them to be wholesome, happy individuals. We know the difference that music can make in one's life."
