Don't Turn Away 



5 Song EP


Fall 2013


Charlie Van Kirk - producer Christopher Marion - strings Brendan Walter - album art


After losing my voice in 2012 and being unable to sing without pain, I wasn't sure if I'd ever make another album. In the Kickstarter to record "The Truth" I had promised an EP of cover songs around the themes North/South. Once I began to sing again (sometimes with pain, sometimes without) in mid-2013, I realized that I didn't want to do covers, but had enough of my own songs around the themes North and South. I enlisted Charlie Van Kirk to help me produce the record. Besides the songs themselves, I really turned this one over to collaboration. My main goal was to sing again and to raise awareness about eating disorders and the bulimia that was one factor in losing my voice. Proceeds from the record went towards the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA).
