We were among the many who evacuated during the Valley Fire in September 2015. About six months later, upon hearing about an upcoming benefit - I was wondering what I might perform... when this song manifested itself. With lots of volunteer help, we managed to put together a band, recording studio, community chorus and a music video! The Lake County Sheriffs Dept even let us use some of their horrific dashcam footage!
Visit valleyfiresong.org to watch the video and donate to help survivors and first responders. Like the last line in the song: "We put you out, but you're not done." There's much still to be done. Unfortunately, the Santa Rosa and Southern California fires have also been tragic. I used to perform at a couple of clubs and hotels that are no longer there.
