Musical musings from the darkest of nights, to take you out of the abyss and pull you back from the brink.

In the deep belly of the storm, when you are tested to your limits, on the brink of disaster, on the edge of losing control and nothing, nothing is going right. Uncover those truths kept secret for years, hold those scars to the sun, let the ache fade away. Ballads from the Brink exposes the power of the human spirit to shake it up, shake it off and lighten up even your darkest day.
