Friends... I want to share some news with you. I have been working hard on a new recording project. It is a collection of songs I wrote, but I am not lead singing on any of the songs. Instead, I asked an all-star cast of western North Carolina musicians to sing lead vocals and I played the instruments. These are all songs relating to pediatric illness in one way or another. They are songs about hope, pain, confusion, and love. I am currently calling this project 'Army of Love'. Here is a list of the singers and players involved.... Amanda Anne Platt, Mike Ashworth and Mike Guginno, Andrew Scotchie, Jay Brown and Aditi Sethi-Brown, Alexa Rose, Jimmy Davidson and Rob Brown, Melissa Hyman and Ryan Furstenberg, Woody Wood, Laura Blackley, Jane Kramer, and Shannon Whitworth. Also adding their talent is Josh Gibbs, Andy Gibbon, and Derrick Gardner. My goal with this album is to raise awareness and any and all money from purchases will be donated to charities helping battle childhood illness. I look forward to sharing these songs with you in the coming months. Thank you so much for your support and more details to come.
