Everybody Has A Purpose

 ... Joe Kidd & Sheila Burke have composed a soundtrack for the future.  Twelve songs, twelve visions, twelve journeys into twelve different worlds.  This is music that inhabits the souls of humans.  The chords are simple, the voices are harmonious yet strong, the songs are powerful, beautiful, and truthful.  The record plays like a "Greatest Hits" album that could span a career instead of the first offering by these multi-award winning, international, recording artists & songwriters.  All songs here are original, all are classics, they move from genre to genre and in the process create a new and exciting genre.  The influences are obvious without mentioning names.  The critics and fans unanimously agree, "Joe Kidd & Sheila Burke have a purpose" - that is, to bring to you one of the most important records you will ever encounter ...
