"The way I see it, I approach my music community the same way I approach my church community. There is care, you know? There's love. And so I think that influenced the themes in my music. A lot of times, people would tell me, 'It feels very positive. I feel good inside.' And that's exactly what I kind of wanted to convey, and that is definitely influenced by my faith." -Mark Redito
