Violence & Vinings Gig Announcement

I’ve got a family history (a generation ago anyway) of dv (domestic violence) and decided to do whatever I can to attack (no pun intended) the root cause in order to help prevent this cycle. Read this blog article if you want to learn why I’m investigating Men Stopping Violence. And please leave a comment.

I’ve recently been asked and, yes, music is what I’m doing full-time. I have other forms of income and a Bachelor’s in Industrial Design but halfway through decided I wanted to take music seriously and made that what mattered to me. Been a tough & lonely road but I believe I’m crafty and dedicated enough to “make it” and, furthermore, I’ve realized music can do so much more that I originally thought: you can latch onto a cause and make a significant change in society.

The smallest voice inside your head is prolly the right one.

So on the 18th of November I’m going to sit in on a court-mandated Men Stopping Violence session at the courthouse. There, men learn about better ways and how to deal with intense emotions.

Anyway, I want to get on CBS Atlanta Better Mornings and have true information about this cause and play a song, 15% of my CD or shirt or whatever would go to MSV. It’s alarming to find out how many people I tell about this cause have been directly impacted by dv. I want to do all I can to fix this glitch in society. I’ll keep y’all updated.

Also, I’d like to announce an intimate show this coming Thursday, Nov. 17th in Vinings. The venue is super = Inside Out  Accessories. Somewhere between an art store and a gallery, they only sell art made by Georgia artists – and at remarkably low prices. You’ll be shocked. Before D’ree Harris, owner of this 8 month old establishment finds out she should be charging more, you should get over there and buy something for your girlfriend. She will love you forever and you can’t go wrong here… Or just come & check out a few of our new songs and receive ONE FREE HUG. I’ll be there from 6 – 9 performing as Jake Rathburn & the Local Blokes: Fen Fenwick, Rob Agocs (Red Cadillac), and possibly a few more.
