Living in Troubled Times 

With President Trump ordering the killing of Qasem Soleimani and the Iranian government retaliating by bombing a US airbase in Iraq, we are finding ourselves perilously close to a war that would be harmful to all parties involved and many innocent people around the globe as well.

It was my belief that events like this were inevitable that inspired me to write "A Better Life", my most recent release, which expresses my distress about the state or world affairs.  The song is unique in that it uses the Morse Code for SOS as the underlying rhythm of the song.  Morse Code is the universal distress signal and SOS is three dots, three dashes, three dots.

I'm disappointed that I have not been able to get people to listen to it in any meaningful numbers.  It can't be said that people don't like the song because they'd have to listen to it in order to know that and I haven't been able to get people to listen.  The few people who have listened are as puzzled as I am that a song so timely, well-conceived and produced has garnered so little attention.

You can hear it on this site or any any streaming service including Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and Bandcamp.  Take advantage of the free download.  Please listen to it and tell me what you think.  And please share it!
