RELEASE DATE 9.11

"Fizh&Gritz" features fabulous guest vocalists from the SounDoctrine landscape like Janis Jones, Tara Amill & Michaela with newcomers, husband & wife team Kurtis & Ricquita Townsend showcasing their wonderful voices.

This project intentionally addresses present cultural issues from a faith based perspective.

The First Single, "Fake News" scrutinizes Mainstream Media sources for the obvious bias interjected into stories instead of reporting the news without editorializing or interjecting personal opinions.

Other songs like "Only Two," challenges emerging cultural norms by repeated quoting Genesis 1:27, affirming that God created Two Genders, not multiple ones.

"Tolerance" ponders the practice of those who cry loudest for others to be tolerant of them and their lifestyles are the least likely to show it.

"Obfuscating Euphemisms" explores various words and phrases created & redefined, such as "Toxic Masculinity," "Racism," "Woke," "Preferred Pronouns" and others now used to reshape society.

"F&G" also questions the Christian Church's response (or lack thereof) in addressing such difficult narratives.

The tunes "Repentance," "Shake&Shine," "Grace&Truth" and "The One" were written to encourage, challenge and celebrate the Christian Faith.

My Motive is to spark deeper dialogue into areas where people only appear to be shouting. To Me, It Doesn't Matter if You're DemocratRepublicanWhiteBlackLatinxStraightGay or Otherwise. At our Core, We Are First and Foremost a Person. If We don't learn how to engage healthy conversation, even into points where we agree to disagree, we are going to destroy the essence of the human experience and the whole of society. I write from a perspective of faith because I am a man who's faith in God is deeply rooted, yet I believe every single person deserves respect and dignity, so I live this out in my personal life. This album is a snapshot of what's happening and what's hopeful!

"Fizh&Gritz" wlll be released in staggered phases on Emanate, a new crypto-currency platform and through a micro-subscription model on Jere B / SounDoctrine's website which allows subscribers access to various versions and mixes.

A Bonus Song, "Let Me Live" which will be available to subscribers only, is written from the viewpoint of a fetus in the womb of a mother contemplating suicide.
