Great quote from Ryan Shupe

I don’t need to make millions. There’s a lot more to music than just being funneled through the giant music machine. What it really comes down to is if people leave your show feeling uplifted; they’re going to come back. It’s more a labor of love. You have to love it because you’re most likely not going to strike it rich.

People e-mail and write letters to tell us how our songs have helped them. I keep them all. I’m blessed — I get to play music and travel and meet lots of cool people and hopefully make a difference in people’s lives. (Deseret Morning News, 11.22.2006)
