Abby's Army album about Love & Loss

It’s hard to believe today marked 6 months since my beautiful wife, Abby Calvo , died of Ewing's Sarcoma. More than 180 days have come and gone and the great challenge of each new day has become finding ways to hold on and finding ways to move on – reminding myself I am right where I am.

I started writing music this summer. I’m not sure where music will take me in this journey, but it is helping me heal. I want to explore it and I’m curious if my music has the power to help others heal too. So over the next six months I plan to produce a series of songs and stories that I can share about these experiences of love and loss. To make a mark for my 6 year old son, Jaren, and 3 year old daughter, Miri, and many others, proceeds will go to support cancer research.

If you want to be a part of the journey and would like to hear what I’ve got to share, please make a donation.

If you are a musician and artist, and want to participate in some way towards my effort, please reach out. While I don’t exactly know where this journey will take me, maybe you have some ideas we can explore together.

Check out a new song about transformation and discovery called Driftwood Fire.  Let the music inspire you and help me inspire others by donating and sharing my campaign.

Love and healing,
