"I can't tell you how excited I am to finally have completed this album...there is a ton of emotion and soul searching in this one. I feel that I was meant to go through difficult times in life, then tell the world my life story through song, that's how Sin and Redemption came to life.  We go through life making mistakes, our hearts get broken, we experience loss, but somehow we keep on going and never give up. That's the beauty of the human spirt. Faith has alot to do with it. We also experience love, peace, and bliss. My world is painted the way I see it, and that is with love and forgiveness." - Christine Martucci
