Supporting Cause - Mental Health & Recovery
Mental Health has been a battle I have fought my whole life and recovery is something that is very close to home. Having an older brother who struggled with mental health and addiction while chasing dreams of success in the industry, it inspired me to stand for something better to help musicians like my brothers.
