One thing I always loved about sf59 is that it was basically a guy with a day job who does this amazing songwriting and recording on evenings/weekends. Starflyer fans have the same kind of creative ethic and are out there in the world spending their free time making something new. Check out what Starflyer fans are getting themselves into.
