So one of the exciting things to announce is the release of my third album and first official one with the Krew, "Long Way Home" You can find it on iTunes or on www.jhonnyk.bandcamp.com
A couple of months ago, I had an aha moment when I realized and remembered why I got into music in the first place. I originally wrote "Break Free" as a way to create music that wasn't cheesy with an upbeat tone and message. I found that this last year, I got to busy worrying paying the band members, making sure we had people at shows, and booking more then I lost sight of that.
So finally after 100 shows in 2013, I came to a decision. I am going to go back to doing music for its original purpose. That is, to uplift, heal, and inspire those who hear it.
My focus in the year of 2014 is the ARISE Suicide Prevention Concert series and getting it up and running. This is part of my calling, to create a way that we reach those who are lost through music, and then funnel them to the resources they need to recover from the darkness. Whether thats mental health help, or just a community to go to and know there are people there for them.
I will probably do some more Youtube Videos and house concerts, but I will keep my performing live restricted to those times when I am able to really inspire someone, not just entertain at a bar with my music.
I am humbled and so pleased to see how much has been given as of lately. It means more then anyone can understand and for that I am truly humble.
Keep in touch and just wait, this next step is going to be awesome!
