The Story of Saint Anonymous

The first swinging folkgospelsingle ‘Roaming Stone’ is a CherryCharitysong, the revenues go to innocent regufees in Detention (Zeist)

The Desert

Before there was the Story of Saint Anonymous, there was the desert, the dew & the dawn. It was recorded, filmed and performed. Go to media and check it out!
