It’s official! “Willful Amnesia” will be featured in the indie film “Rag Doll“:

Rag Doll
http://ragdollmovie.com/

Release Date:

Summer 2011

Synopsis:

When a heated argument between Adam Wurlitz and his pregnant girlfriend lands Adam unjustly behind bars, life for Adam changes drastically. Now out on probation, Adam secures a residence and job maintaining the grounds for a well-off entrepreneur, Lou Mercola. As Adam tours his new “home”, Lou introduces Adam to his son, Daniel, who hasn’t spoken a word in years.

Over the course of the following weeks, Adam is witness to Lou’s unwarranted physical abuse on the young boy and soon Adam is horrified to discover that Daniel’s abuse goes far beyond just physical. The night he discovers this horrific truth, life once again changes for Adam forever as he instinctively flees with Daniel in an effort to protect him.

Unaware that he has left Daniel’s medication behind, Adam and Daniel hit the road headed out of the country and the duo become fast friends with an unbreakable bond.

Mission:

It is our hope to not only entertain our viewers but to also raise awareness and support for real children afflicted by physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. As the numbers rise, we must fight this unfortunate problem. That is why 30% of all profits made from the film, premiere, festival winnings, and/or distribution deals will be donated to the Kids House of Seminole, Inc. in Sanford, Florida. Kids House of Seminole is a charity offering many services to children who suffer at the hands of abuse.

I will be releasing a new single every month in the lead up to the official release of the album. For March, I have a new release called “Angel” – a harrowing piano ballad about the agony of deception. This one has Jervy Hou on piano, Hiro Goto on violin, Irina Chirkova on cello, and Dave Stone on bass.

It’s getting closer and closer to the day of the album release! That means it’s time to stop thinking of each song as a single and to start thinking about the songs as a collection. While I do have a track listing in mind, I would love to hear your thoughts :)

I have only two hard requirements: 1) the album starts with “Masquerade” and 2) the album ends with “Home”. So how would you get between them?

Official Track Order

01) Masquerade
02) Broken Man
03) Now or Never
04) Russian Roulette
05) Puppet Master
06) Ambiguous Mess
07) Angel
08) Willful Amnesia
09) The Prayer
10) One
11) Sunday Morning
12) Home

Tracks: Ambiguous Mess, Angel (WIP), Broken Man, Home (WIP), Masquerade, Now or Never, One (WIP), Puppet Master, Russian RouletteSunday Morning, The Prayer, Willful Amnesia

P.S. I’ll give a free (pre-order) physical + digital album to the first person whose list is the same as mine :) I’ll fill in one blank per week on Sunday at noon (PST). Only one entry per person per week, so forget about posting every permutation ;P Congratulations to Pat Beaupre! :)

I will be releasing a new single every month in the lead up to the official release of the album. For February, I have a new release called “Russian Roulette” – a hard hitting rock anthem that crosses the imagery of the Western duel, a deadly game of skill, and Russian Roulette, a deadly game of luck. So live for the moment, because “when you live by the gun, you’re either dead or alive”. And always remember that “you can never play dice with the devil and win”. This one has Jervy Hou on piano, Mick Taras on guitar, Drew Allsbrook on bass guitar, and John Ferraro on drums.
