Oliver J. Hughes of Kansas City is a songwriter/composer who creates atmospheres that have purpose and a vision. For instance, Hughes elaborates on the song 'Ought'. Of the song he says it "looks at what the world ought to have been -- before sin entered the world. What was that like? What did it feel like to be human; walking and talking with God? Before the massive disintegration of people, systems, time, space, etc., there was an 'ought'." These are the words of a visionary that is deeply connected to purpose with in himself and the music.
