Activism has always been a part of my life. As well as being a full-time musician I do what i can to lend my voice - musical or otherwise - to issues of social justice. One of them is the case of Jose Figueroa:

 

HELPING JOSE

I am happy to report that after a long battle my friend Jose Figueroa has been granted his freedom (and has also been granted permanent residency) after being forced into sanctuary over two years ago! Thanks to The Immigration Minister John McCallum for granting Jose this freedom to be re-united with his family. We are still fighting for Jose to officially clear his name of any terrorism charges.

A recent song I wrote called "YOU ARE WELCOME HERE" is available to download! All proceeds from the download go to the "We are Jose" campaign - to raise funds to help pay for the legal defence of Jose  - a Salvadoran  refugee facing deportation from Canada for his non-violent opposition to the right-wing military dictatorship in EL Salvador in the 1980s. He had been forced into sanctuary in a Langley church in an effort to avoid deportation. This is a cause very dear to my heart and I would love your support.

A video for the song - made by Jose himself can be seen here:

It Could Be You

In 2016, together with The Fairest and Best, I released a new single and video called "It Could Be You".  All proceeds from the sale of the song go to the International Red Cross for their work with refugees worldwide. The song is a call for empathy for refugees - whose numbers are climbing daily.
