Not too long after my accident I met this guy named Billy. Billy is an above knee amputee and kind of a rock-star drummer. He makes being an amputee look cool. After a while Billy and I started to become friends and we started to dream about how we could help other people who had also lost a limb. Billy runs a Non-Profit called Steps of Faith. Steps of Faith provides the type of support that amputees might need after the loss of a limb. Just a few months ago Billy and I asked 27 of our artist friends (And some of their friends…) to give a song for a compilation that we would eventually give away to raise money for people who could not afford a prosthetic. And well…the compilation is out! You can download this sweet album and all of the “tips” will go to buying a prosthetic leg (or arm) to someone in need. This is a big deal for me personally because it means that I get the privilege of helping others in my same situation. Losing a limb is really hard even with support. Without emotional, financial, and spiritual support, it could feel impossible. This is the chance to provide those going through tragic times with the support they need. Check it out here, and please consider leaving a tip. It could literally be the reason that someone walks again. And well, that is no small deal. PS- Check out what Steps of Faith is doing here.

3 Carols is an EP of three intimate recordings of, you guessed it, 3 of my favorite Christmas Songs. My good friend Stevie Griffin and I recorded these several years ago. And even after a few years, there is still a charm to all of these songs and the way we recorded them. We recorded them with the hope that they would sound like I was in your living room with a few friends, singing a few Christmas songs. I can only hope that they make your Christmas Season a little brighter. https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/3-carols/id407659944
