Army of Love (Childhood Battles) is an album of 11 songs that I wrote, arranged, and recorded. These songs revolve around pediatric illness and cover a wide range of emotions from anger and confusion to love and compassion. Although I wrote these songs, I knew I was not the one to sing them. I turned to some of my fellow musicians and friends in the Western NC region and asked for their help. There has been unwavering support for this project and I am grateful to the singers/musicians who gave their time and talent. Unbeknownst to them, my wife and I started calling them the 'Army of Love'. They are Amanda Anne Platt (The Honeycutters), Mike Ashworth and Mike Guggino (Steep Canyon Rangers), Andrew Scotchie, Jay Brown and Aditi Seth-Brown, Alexa Rose, Jimmy Davidson and Rob Brown (The Worthless Son-in-Laws), Melissa Hyman and Ryan Furstenberg (The Moon and You), Aaron Woody Wood, Laura Blackley, Jane Kramer, Shannon Whitworth. Additional musicians are Andy Gibbon, Josh Gibbs, and Derrick Gardner.
The goal with this album is to raise awareness of pediatric illness. Any and all funds raised by this project will be donated to charities that have helped so many kids and their families on this journey.
