Challenges that we all face in some way, shape or form, in our lives. The band and all musicians have agreed to donate the proceeds to the Seattle Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Contributing musicians include:

Tommy Odetto has been blazing quite a trail for himself this past year. After a Killer set at last year’s Conejo and getting invited onstage to jam with Grohl and Chevy Metal, the Fairfax native has stirred quite a buzz all the way down to Southern California.
This year, he was direct support for Chevy Metal at Conejo Valley Days and boy, did he bring his a game! Backed by younger brother Nick Odetto on Drums, Tim Baker (Bass), and Milo Horstman (Rhythm Guitar), the band played a smoking set of blues Rock with Tommy killing it on lead. The 28 year old axe man is gifted with amazing riffs and poise reminding us of a young Stevie Ray Vaughan is set to record this summer at the famed 606 Studio. His set was composed of original material and wicked Amy Winehouse cover joined on vocals by the talented Myeshia Cleveland.
Tommy has been working tirelessly with his management to raise the balance of studio fees on a gofundme page. His true love of music and the soulful way he plays is sure to come through on his recordings. He has a commanding stage presence and band that plays as tight as ever it won’t be long before Tommy Odetto is a household name. The set was killer and played straight from the heart it’s good to see that in such a young talented player these days. If you’re out in the Bay Area, be sure to catch one of his sets.

When Tommy and I started working together last year, I had no idea what kind of wild ride I was getting onto. We had a false start last fall. But now this is real. It is happening and we could not be more excited to share with you. Tommy has the opportunity to record at Dave Grohl's private studio with none other than Barrett Jones (Laundry Room Studios, Seattle - Nirvana, Foo Fighters). Please visit his crowdfund site for the full story, videos and ways to help!
