Long before I made a film I was singing, playing and writing music. But in 2011 I went down a rabbit hole of exposing AA. I had finished this record but never got it up there. Life filled with film making, health issues as well as helping those who were victimized by AA, I finally took the action to get this music up there.
Record Store is a compilation of years of work. Some songs were written long, long ago. A few songs are covers, like Suzanne- which I have been singing since I am a teenager . Abraham, Martin & John was a favorite I learned after hearing Tori Amos perform it. It doesn’t Mater anymore I sang with a beat up crappy guitar when I was living in Manoa Valley, in Hawaii at age 19. Those were sad and hard years. I was embedded in AA during that time and AA actually made me worse. By the time I was 3 years sober in AA – the depression broke. I should have left AA when I was one year into their stupid cult. Oh well. The rest is history and I would not have made the film and I would not have met you all !
Hank Linderman and Michael Martinnson were key players in the recording.
Peace to you and Love,
