If you’re familiar with Sojourn albums Over The Grave and Advent Songs, then you’re familiar with vocalist, songwriter, keyboard/guitar player Dave Moisan. He co-wrote “Warrior” and “We Are Changed” on Over The Grave with Neil Robins and me, and he sang on both tracks. He also co-wrote that album’s “Savior King” with Eddy Morris and Joel Gerdis.
