Bricks in the Wall CD

The Album ”Bricks in the Wall” is comprised of eleven original songs aimed based on personal experience with the aim of generating awareness of  Domestic Violence. It is the journey from realizing that something is amiss in a relationship in  the dynamic “Breath of Air”  to getting through  the pain to a place of solace in the “Light at the end of the Tunnel”. Whereas “Bricks in the Wall” and “the fight to be Strong” speak directly with the violence, other songs such as “Let You Go”, “The Life we never had”, “Nothing left to do but say goodbye” and “The Bare Minimum” deal with the emotions usually associated with leaving a relationship .The album is balanced by the compassionate ballads of self acceptance, “Midnight” and  “ Curtain Falls” as well as the lushly orchestrated “You must have heard me pray”, addressing the issue of child custody.
