"This is the Blues/Gospel record I always wanted to make. I want to start by thanking the One who makes this all possible, My Lord and Savior and my dear friend Steve Hamilton. Without Steve, this album would not have become a reality. Steve is a very special angel. I dedicate this album to the Blessed Trinity, who I have had a personal experience with, and to my beautiful wife Bethany, and my beautiful children Dena and Bryan. The idea of a Blues-Gospel Album was born one afternoon while singing the Lord’s Prayer in Svalbard, Norway. I had a dream that was an arrangement of the Lord’s Prayer. When I woke up the next morning, I still remembered it. Rarely do I remember my dreams. The rest is history. A gift is not a gift unless you share it. God gave me the gift of The Blues. And I want to share my gift with you. Last, but not least, I personally want to thank my dear friend Richard Draper. His prayer “Sanctuary” was the basis for the title tune on the album. God Bless you all." - Bryan Lee
