The clipper songs
After my time in the Marine Corps, I decided to take a job working on board a cruise ship, The Yorktown Clipper. We sailed from Alaska to the Virgin Islands with many stops between. My first year I spent on board as a deckhand and my second year I rotated as an engineer. I could write many more songs about cruise life (maybe one day I will), but here are a couple!
"Breaking Point" has the sound and vibe of Kings of Leon meets Pink Floyd. It speaks to people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD or abuse. It may not have any hard answers as to how to fix the problems, but maybe at the least, it is a way for someone who suffers from any of these issues can share how they feel. But, I especially want this song to convey a message of hope. If you you or someone you know need help please call 1-800-442-Hope.
"Devil Dogs" is a bluesy rock song with a bit of a country vibe. It is a tribute and thank you to my fellow U.S. Marines . The download is free and all I ask is, if you can, please make a donation to my local Marine Corps League. The Mobile chapter for the MCL is involved in many charities for Veterans and also special needs. I am very proud to be apart of a great organization that is helping others in my local community. You can donate and learn more below. Thank you for your support!
