From Jock Bartley on Fb., 5/06/19: Here’s FIREFALL’s David Muse, Sandy Ficca and Mark Andes around the fire outside of Sandy’s studio 5/3/19, after finishing our recording session of a few new songs. We were up in Clear Lake & Medford OR for the benefit concert the following day for Sandy’s non-profit “Use Your Gift” Foundation that takes young kids and senior citizens into his studio to give them a taste of professional recording. Thanks to Sam and Sany for the hospitality and great vibe around the fire.
