Beautiful song. A shame it never made it to Criminal Minds, it's a perfect song for the show. JR's vocals are beautiful and haunting, as is the melody. It gives me the same feeling as Winter Sun.
Fabulous song J.R. If only the project could have continued. Mouth watering to think what fantastic material would no doubt have come from it.
Favorite track: The Glorious Love - A Dark Safe Place.

"A Dark Safe Place" is the only song that was recorded by a side project I was in called "The Glorious Love". The members included Trace Ritter on guitar and Jason Koiter on drums and various keyboards and me on vocals. We wrote the song originally for an episode of "Criminal Minds" but the song never made it on the show (sadly). However, we enjoyed working on the song together so much we planned on writing more songs under "The Glorious Love". Sadly, that never transpired. Both Trace and Jason were part of my touring band from 2009-2010.
