As the rate of hate crimes continue to increase in the U.S. and a political movement towards homogeny swells, my heart was broken thinking about the prospect of losing those you love most—or yourself becoming a target—as I watched footage from last year’s Charlottesville “Unite The Right” rally in which a white supremacist drove a car into a crowd of people of color and anti-racist activists, murdering Heather Heyer.
May love prevail.

On Friday, August 17th, I’m digitally releasing a song called “Love in the Time of Hate” that was inspired by the white supremacist attack on anti-racist protesters at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, killing activist Heather Heyer last year.
The track is a collaboration with producer/sound designer Gabriel Walker.
It’ll be available on all your favorite and least favorite streaming and download sites (Spotify, YouTube Music, Apple Music/iTunes, Bandcamp, etc).
