"The future is so bright, I just have to wear shades." -- Val
I've been writing songs for a long time and it began with playing violin in the orchestra in the 5th and 6th grades, guitar lessons, trumpet lessons, and needing to express my experiences and feelings. Some of my music (e.g., ALL MY LIFE & WHERE'S IT AT? and I SEE MY LITTLE GIRL) is energy dedicated to creating answers & solutions to child abuse and neglect to heal whoever and whatever contributes to it. It's integrating the spiritual & mystical intention into the vast realm of sound.
In 2011, I dived wholeheartedly into more of my bliss by saying YES to originating, creating, directing, writing and producing film and television. I'll post a teaser trailer video for one of them (TUCHT, a feature film) that I'm directing and producing. The Reach 4 Freedom Project will be included in the soundtrack.
Visit the Reach 4 Freedom: Heal Child Abuse Music Project. Contact me if you are inspired to contribute by recording the songs; producing, arranging or mixing them, or including them on a film, TV or Web series soundtrack! Together we can do what we can't do alone to end child abuse.
