My band - the fabulous "FAIREST AND BEST" (www.thefairestandbest.com) recently released our first EP - "When I Feel Like This" - a sophomore release to my solo debut "Storm in a Teacup". The EP has already been added to the playlists of over 100 radio stations across North America and two songs garnered runner up placements (in two categories) of the 2015 Dallas Songwriters Association Song Contest. Additionally the EP has elicited three all - network sync licensing contracts (The Discovery Channel, Fox Sports and The NASCAR Network) as well as contracts from twelve individual shows - including The Real World, Bad Girls Club, Total Divas and three Kardashian shows - none of which the band has ever watched! You can hear it by clicking the HEAR AND DOWNLOAD MUSIC tab above or you can download it here:

Or as a couple of recent reviwers put it:
"I have no idea what genre this is, it's just good......something I won't be able to get out of my head for days." (KAMP Radio)
"It sounded like Huey Lewis and the News were having sex with Supertramp while Steely Dan watched (smoking a cigarette) "Nelson Sobral)
Here's what we look like (serious shot)
And a not - so serious shot!

I am happy to report that after a long battle my friend Jose Figueroa has been granted his freedom after being forced into sanctuary over two years ago! Thanks to The Immigration Minister Joh McCallum for granting Jose this freedom to be re-united with his family.
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:
