One Voice 

I also am honored to have played mandolin on the track "One Voice" produced by my friend Dean Falcone. It is from the soundtrack of the documentary "A Dog Named Gucci" and features the talents of a who's who of recording artists including Norah Jones, Aimee Mann, Neko Case, Susanna Hoffs, Brian May, among others. All proceeds are to be donated to several animal rights organizations.

I understand they planned to release a few different versions of the track, one featuring only the acoustic guitar and mandolin.

The official release on vinyl is Saturday, April 16 in celebration of Record Store Day. This link gets you to the Facebook Record Store Day page:

The track is also available for download at iTunes…/al…/one-voice-single/id1077025931
