“When I’m most rigid and most busy I’m the least creative. When I’m on vacation I always write new songs. My mind get’s in that creative zone where it wants to stimulate itself.” - Andrew Oliver


 


“Working with what you have and not being afraid to work with what you have is the first step.” - Andrew Oliver


 


“That lack of things they have to create with pushes them way outside the box to form the disruption.” - Host Dave Swillum
