I wanted to produce a song that was an alchemy of some of my favorite songs, Come thou Fount & Take a Minute by K’naan.  Todd Schwartzman and Matt Cropper are super talented music producers that made my vision a reality.  Watch the Making of the Recovery Song right here.


“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
