I have been in recovery for over 30 yrs and spend most of my time traveling to treatment facilities around the country to lead recovery music groups.
I know about the healing power of music. I see it in the faces of the patients and read it in the messages they send me when they’ve left treatment.
I have written a collection of Rock and Roll tunes with lyrics that talk about Addiction, Recovery, Hope and Possibilities.
After each group i'm asked by patients where they can get the music, so I raised some dough through an online campaign and got busy.
A few of the tunes I left stripped down like I play them at treatment , but 3/4 of the cd is music you would expect from me.
Rock and Roll

Now that the cd has been completed I will GIVE IT AWAY at treatment facilities, and sell it online.
I will personally donate a portion of the sales to our non profit organization-Ricky Byrd’s Clean Getaway to help fund our outreach programs in communities across the country.
