OPERATION ENCORE is a collaboration of singer-songwriters from across the military and veteran communities. We chose 11 artists to travel to Phoenix and record their original songs in a professional studio. Our goal is to bring musicians together, tell our stories to the public through music, and to raise money for veterans causes. Our 1st album is available now on iTunes and CDBaby.com.
A portion of net profits will go to support a variety of veterans charities.
We want to hear from you! Email, Twitter, Facebook, Skype - however you want to do it. Just don't be shy! Ask us any question that comes to your mind. If you think we're doing something the wrong way - tell us! In fact, give us your worst. We are not music industry professionals and we expect to make mistakes along the way. Don't worry, you can't hurt our feelings. (No, really - it's impossible. As pilots in the Air Force, we disavowed our "feelings" years ago.)
That being said, at this stage in our lives, we are too damn stubborn to accept anything less than success. We hope that you will join us in being a part of something special that can affect positive change, right now, in the lives of others.
- Rob, Erik & Chris
