Music is our 1st Language - Album Fundraiser

Music is our 1st Language.

Welcome to our official album fundraiser directed by Max Ribner. 

The heart of the album:

Even when we are born, the 1st cry is like a song... As we come into the world and our identities begin to form, we can lose track of the gift of life.  Music now for centuries has become a tool to bring us back to balance. 

The hope is that this music will be a place of refuge for people to find peace… and the hooks of these songs can bridge us back into the miracle of what it is to be alive. 

Infused with a gospel choir, orchestration, horns, and world + guest artists, this is a work of art that extends far beyond my reach— so that it can touch many lives.

We're going to need your support.

Here’s how:  You can pre-order an album, donate any amount, and share this with your friends & family.  With all of my heart, your generosity is truly appreciated. This project cannot come to life without you.  Every single one of you is such a valuable part of this larger vision.
