The Protector is a thesis album recorded by Mie Richardson, being the culmination of his 4 years of education at Berkley music school. He was able to record his composition with a full orchestra. Mie hopes that The Protector can be his calling card, as he is graduating college and moving to LA to pursue his dreams of being a professional music composer.  He refuses to let anything get in the way of his future and is doing whatever it takes to make it big.  And what about relaxing? He says life is too short!
