Before and Afterlife: The Theory of Positivity (MP3 album)
My full-length album released on September 10th, 2013. I’m perpetually committed to raise funds and awareness of Suicide Prevention and Mental Health. For the single "Weight" I am donating 100 percent of all proceeds from download sales. For the album I'm donating 50 percent of any full album download and/or CD sales proceeds to support the cause. Currently, I’m donating proceeds to www.DIFD.com, a youth mental health organization under www.TheRoyal.ca. Internationally, see 10 on the 10th describing how I’m proposing to support other legitimate Mental Health organizations.
Since my daughter's death, music has become much bigger for me than I ever expected. It is an outlet that holds me together, a big part of my ongoing therapy in this aftermath of grief and depression. "Before and Afterlife: The Theory of Positivity" is a collection of music representing work that goes back to 1997—before my loss, and after. The songs cover a range of emotions, from love to loss, from joy to hope, from landscapes in our minds to the deepest oceans in our hearts. I always try and bring a positive Groove to my work, as do the wonderful players who have helped me create this album. They are all amazing artists (from Canada and the USA). They all bring the groove.
