ADWL Depression Awareness Drive

Donation protected
A Day Without Love (ADWL) is the alternative emo rock project by Brian Walker from Philadelphia. Starting in 2013, ADWL has achieved regional success in the northeast USA areas through the independent release of many EPs and splits. Walker has been able to lead this project to playing in SXSW 2015 and has signed with DIY Label Sounds and Tones Records from North Adams, Massachusetts.

Currently, A Day Without Love is working with Jake Detwiler at Fresh Produce Studios in Philadelphia towards the production of a debut full length record entitled Solace. 

Your help is needed to allow A Day Without Love to help others in the fight with depression. 

You can hear A Day Without Love’s music on Spotify, Itunes and Amazon or stream the music on Bandcamp at


1) How much of this campaign is helping the band and how much of this campaign is helping Erika's Lighthouse? 

Update: Due to some fortunate personal situations I will be now funding 100 percent of the proceeds from this fundraiser to Erika's Lighthouse, please support this fundraiser and match the cost of the record of 2,000 to the amount that we can give to Erika's Lighthouse. 

Answer: In order to record,mix,master and cover production of the album for CDS and cassettes a minimum of 2,000 dollars is needed.  As a result of our financial upgrades we will be matching the cost of the record with your help by raising 2,000 dollars. 

2) What if the campaign does not raise enough funds for the record or Erika's Lighthouse? 

Answer: If we are unable to raise 2,000 dollars at the end of this A Day Without Love will be handing out information about Erika's Lighthouse during our tour dates of this LP as well as donate a portion of proceeds from record sales to Erika's Lighthouse. 

3) What if this campaign greatly exceeds 2,000 dollars? 

Answer: If this occurs, Erika's Lighthouse will recieve 100 percent of all donations. 

4) What will these workshops look like?

These workshops will be open forum dialogues in various locations ( venues, diy spaces, etc) that will occur prior to tour dates or between shows that will educate people on how to destroy the stigma on depression by sharing Brian Walker's story and giving out pamphlets to Erika's Lighthouse. 

5) When will this campaign end?

Although GoFundMe has no hard deadlines, this campaign will end towards the end of  January 2016. .
