SOLACE is a personal musical healing project created to pay tribute to my father, whom I lost 25 years ago, due to senseless gun violence on the south side of Chicago. My hope in SOLACE is to bring powerful closure and to offer healing and comfort to those millions of others suffering silently. I pray for the power of music to enable us to seek compassion, forgiveness, appreciation and love.
