Hey Mixers,

Here's my submission. It's a song I wrote (and re-wrote and re-wrote) a while ago called "Focus On Today".  It's about breaking the cycle of pain many of my friends have dealt with for years, or even entire lifetimes, whether drug, verbal, or even sexual abuse related.  It's arming yourself with the love and support of your friends and family around you.  (15+ of my friends and family actually contributed vocals to the end of the song, which was awesome.)

I worked with Sonar 7 and Reason 4, and struggled a bit with Young Guru's cardinal rule of keeping recordings out of the red.  I'd love to have another day to work on this, but deadlines are deadlines..!

A huge thanks to Young Guru and the community here for inspiring me to get this song project moving forward -- I can't even tell you how much of a creative 'weight' it's lifted off my shoulders.  Thanks!

Anyway, here's the MIXED version:

And here's the UNMIXED version:

Thanks again!
