Song Recorded by Valerie Carter and Jackson Browne Included on Album Released Today!

So honored that "Day After Day" a song I wrote with John O'Neil is the lead track on "Valerie Carter the Lost Tapes Volume 2" out today! It's a lovely duet with Jackson Browne!

"The Lost Tapes Volume 2 is simply a magical collection of sweet songs.  Valerie Carter was a kind, gentle soul who made the world a better place by sharing her gifts and bringing out the best in others.  Her recordings reflect a family of musicians working together in concert, who best exemplify the Laurel Canyon sound of harmony and community.

The Lost Tapes Volume 2 is available on all major streaming platforms and the official Valerie Carter website and Facebook page."

"Everybody Knows the Way the Wind Blows" single coming Friday April 8!


A Leg To Stand On Music will release the new single 
"Everybody Knows the Way the Wind Blows" Deena and Chasing Colours April 8th on all music platforms.
"Everybody Knows the Way the Wind Blows" is the result of a long distance collaboration with UK-based producer Chasing Colours

Chasing Colours sent the music my way and I sent the words and melody back to him on the internet wind across the Atlantic. Around the world we’ve become all too aware of airborne illness and toxic ideas. Love, hope and music travel in the air too, and the more of those things we put into the breeze, the more there will be in the world.

The gift of love, hope and mobility that A Leg To Stand On facilitates is a profound and tangible way to help children and make a difference in their lives.  I am delighted and honored to be able to contribute a song to ALTSOMusic.

A Leg To Stand On Music is part of the A Leg To Stand On charity organization to raise funds to provide critical and life-changing mobility treatments to children in developing countries. The organization who recently celebrated their 20,000th child treated since programs began in 2003. By providing free, high-quality prosthetic limbs, orthotic braces, and appropriately fitted wheelchairs to ALTSO’s CoolKids, the charity offers not only mobility to each of its beneficiaries, but the ability to independently attend school each day, in areas where public transportation is absent or unaffordable, providing them access to education, self-esteem, and tools to live self-sufficiently.
