If Garth Brooks and the band Chicago had a baby and its nanny was Pink Floyd, this is what it would sound like! 10 For 20 is comprised of 10 songs that reflect in some way, a few of my experiences and my journey through life over the past 20 years. From my days in the Marine Corps to working on a cruise ship, and from traveling the world to married life!
Country song with a classic sound and a bit of an ethereal feel. Speaks about the struggles couples go through in life, but find a way to persevere. I even got my beautiful wife to help with the background vocals on this one!
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!
"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!
"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.
