I left the music industry as a Billboard charting artist having toured the U.S. and having started my own record label and publishing company. I’ve composed music for big TV shows and films that won awards. Yet, I chose to leave the music business after uncovering many dark truths that exist within that industry. I had the realization that my experiences along with countless others were not anomalies but part of an exploitive system. I left knowing God had a different purpose for my life. I chose freedom. Not just artistic freedom, but spiritual freedom. As an independent artist I’ve been free to create on my own terms; writing, playing and producing my own music. My music is one branch of my advocacy work. All my music sales go directly towards organizations effectively combatting modern day slavery.
