As an instrumental track, this music represents two things: Perseverance and the struggle for morality in a decadent society.

The accompanying painting was created specifically for this music by Zsuzsanna Davis and inspired part of the title "Where Light Shines". This track is actually a part one and two and are greater as a whole. "Keep On" is part one and it's "A" section is based on a purposeful walking pace, the rhythm is decidedly funky. The "B" section of Keep On portrays tension, doubt, violence and fear. The "breakdown" or "C" section contains Zach's expression of healing, rest, meditation before going back into the fray and "keep going". There are strings underneath that serve to soften the harshness and starkness within the music.

Part two, "Where Light Shines", was based from the guitar riff that repeats throughout the entirety of the piece. So much "grows" from the simple repetition that is immediately joined by the gorgeous and comforting chimes which sound like rays of light. The melodic guitars offer comfort and direction on this brief journey. The African drums drive everything dynamically forward.

This release is my first new offering toward what will be the next body of work I call "The Dignity Project". I'm so grateful to have Zach's talent on display here as well as 3 other tracks that will be included in this project. I always had a lot of fun working with my son recording and performing music. It's probably to stand up as the greatest inspiration I could have ever experienced. I will continue my quest to be "his favorite guitarist" through continuing my work and praying for Zach's musical guidance for the rest of my days. - Garrick Davis - World Blues
