I had the pleasure recently of interviewing The Family Stand– Peter Lord, Sandra St. Victor, and V. Jeffrey Smith- what a great time I had! I strongly suggest that if you have not picked up a copy of their latest project In A Thousand Years that you do so here.

In this interview we talk about the state of music past, present and future and what’s on the horizon for The Family Stand individually and collectively. Special thanks to Rob Fields from boldaslove.us for hooking up the interview!
