And a big thanks to family and Lisa's colleague David J Bowie for giving us an early Valentine by putting our words and music to video.

The Frank Horvat Band completes a 22-year-old love story with this song, which is on their new album, I Can See You. While writing for this album, Frank Horvat uncovered his wife's lost teenage poetry. Full of doubts about life's uncertainties, these emotions have strangely dovetailed, years later, with Frank's own artistic and health struggles. Frank finally understood her and them, as he finished his wife's thoughts by putting them to music. Hear her thoughts in this blog post -

Formed in 2013 by Canadian composer/pianist Frank Horvat, The Frank Horvat Band's uncreative name hides a wildly creative sound and a roster of ultra talented musicians. An indie art rock band with an electronic edge, they create a textured atmospheric sound that envelops you with the sweet and soaring voice of Felicity Williams along with Thom Gill (guitar), Bram Gielen (bass), Evan Tighe (percussion).

Pioneering a new post-Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Bjork sound, #TFHB is pop, poetry and modern expression in a beautifully pained existence. Their music takes you through a journey of all encompassing sounds from soft ambience to aggressive repetition. Their debut CD, I Can See You, explores the race we all face against time, inner angst and an isolated longing. The lyrics are old finds, but still relevant to the band's creator. This CD combines words Frank wrote while going through his own periods of turmoil and poetry the love of his life wrote as a teenager, which he found in a lost notebook. Though the songs' themes are mostly troubled, the music aims to leave listeners with a warmth and inner peace. But it isn't all melancholic music as the fourth track captures the freeing moment of falling in love; a combining of two.

Green hills tumbling down
And the wind whistles
As the sun pours over existence

On a pier of darkness we met
On a hill of green we greet
Absorb feelings embedded deep

It can't be so -- the thump of two hearts
Yours and mine
Over and over and over

A flowing of blood
A giving of souls
A combining of two

My thoughts don't do justice
To the flame in my heart

Eyes so deep, nose so brown
Lips a smooth red
Arms that envelope
Hearts that pound
