In 2016, I met a remarkable person.
Arthur Weinfeld had recently recovered from a dangerous brain surgery, in which doctors had removed a massive tumor. Something had changed in Arthur following his surgery… He told me that his entire attitude toward life became more positive and he developed a new and deep sense of creativity.
At nearly 80 years old, he decided to start studying voice. He came to me for vocal lessons and quickly moved on to songwriting. He wrote beautiful and profound poetry and we worked together to put his lyrics to music.
After a year of working together, Arthur was diagnosed with throat cancer, a particularly aggressive melanoma with only a 12% survival rate. I firmly believe that Arthur’s strength of spirit and willingness to say “yes” to life is what put him in that 12%. I’m very happy to report that Arthur has come through treatment and is now cancer-free!
Today marks the release of Arthur’s original songs, two of which I sing on (“Be The Truth” & “Alternate Universe”), beautifully produced by my friend and producer Caleb Loveless (Slow The Devil).
Arthur, now 81, is a practicing Clinical Psychologist, and he pours a lifetime of emotional experience into his lyrics, and I feel incredibly honored to have been a part of this project.
I hope you’ll take a minute to listen to his beautiful songs!
All the love,
