Welcome to Chords of Courage

Music is our universal language. By celebrating the courageous among us through song and video, we can be inspired to perform our own acts of kindness and courage. Daily we are barraged with so many negative messages. Together let’s change the conversation one song at a time!

iss_4780_03083Our Mission

To shine a spotlight on the courageous among us, telling stories through song & video, to transform our country’s conversation from the demoralizing and cynical to the hopeful and inspirational one song at a time.

When you live in a world where news cycles favor the selfish, greedy and violent, stories of the courageous among us get lost in the din. Through songs, videos, and STEPPING UP acts of community service, Chords of Courage puts names, faces and stories to the courageous among us who have performed acts of valor and suffered in the process or performed an act of inspiration born of tragedy whose actions contributed to significant, positive change.

Working with broadcast and social media, schools, and popular sites such as sporting events and concert venues, we will share these incredible stories with the public hoping to interrupt the negative conversation in this country while inspiring young and old alike to perform their own acts of courage and kindness.

We firmly believe that by creating socially conscious music today, we create socially conscious citizens for tomorrow.

Why Start Chords of Courage?

Every time I turn on the TV, the computer, the radio, the  news is filled with stories of violence, pain, political gridlock and constant negativity:  yet another mass murder at home or abroad often perpetrated by evil leadership, incredible financial malfeasance, famous people setting terrible examples, and on and on and on. Some of the perpetrators are punished, many are rewarded with media coverage, money and even video games. After awhile, we become immune to these negative messages and that is what I fear the most for our young people and our society.

In the 1960’s we experienced a social revolution with music at its core. Through broadcast and social media, schools, and popular events, we can do it again. Won’t you join us in highlighting the courageous among us as we shine a spotlight on the ordinary to the extraordinary.

In strength and harmony,
