"Recently I’ve been collaborating with guys from bands I grew up listening to (Lifehouse/Dashboard Confessional, Darius Rucker's band). It was surreal to say the least; but then it hit me. Without hesitation; I reached out to Bryce with the idea for CollabTRAX while watching the documentary on Fred Rogers called, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor.” I think the inspired idea came to me right after Fred Rogers said “love is at the root at everything, all learning, all relationships, love or the lack of it.”
I thought, “what if we created a digital platform that connects studio/touring musicians together; in an effort to inspire and heal those in the world who are less fortunate?” Imagine the sheer healing power if four or five (4-5) known musicians from established bands collaborated on a song together and then donated the proceeds. What if we then hold a benefit show each year for all of our CollabTRAX collaborators? I immediately thought back to a benefit I helped orchestrate, called “Benefit for Bella.” It was then, CollabTRAX was born.

Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be
Yeah...I dare you to move" -Switchfoot
