We are in a time of profound transformation.
As a white person, I am trying to find the right ways to pay reparations for the privileges and systems I have benefited from that have hurt so many others. The ways my silence and inaction have contributed to the systemic racism we have all been mired in and unwilling to face for so long.
A first step I am taking is to release my new record in service of the Black Lives Matter movement. For the next year, I will donate all proceeds of the purchase of this record from my website to the following 6 organizations that need our support right now. You can decide how much you want to pay for the record, and to where you would like your support to go. In turn I will mail you a CD and a private link to the digital record.
Thank you for supporting my music and the important cause we all need to band together now to lift up.
To purchase the album, please select the organization you would like your donation to go to below.
