A defining feature of classical music is the conversation between tension and release, struggle and triumph, conflict and resolution. Music students and chamber music fans alike will be familiar with the concept of music seeking to resolve. Resolution is necessary for musical elements such as tension and release. Likewise, resolution is vital as a personal skill for any composer or musician on their journey in music.

In our lives, the quality of resolve allows us to transcend the barrier between the insurmountable and what is possible with hope, determination, and perseverance. Our debut album, resolve, is inspired by these themes of musical and personal resolve.
