A Meeting With Frank Turner

Image
On October 7, 2015 myself (Kate) and my sister/co-founder of RRSMS got the opportunity to meet the one and only Frank Turner. For those of you that don't know, it was a Frank Turner song, "I Still Believe," that inspired RRSMS. Without Frank, this wouldn't exist, so this was a big moment for me. 
With the help of Bree Vanderland, we got the first volume of Rock & Roll Saved My Soul fixed up, so that we could give Frank a copy and get a few signed. 



So there we were, sitting outside of the record shop acoustic show, waiting to get in.


Frank played one song of each album, and it was amazing! 

After the set we waited, (not so patiently) in line to get to meet him. I won't lie, my heart was racing. I thought I might pass out.  I didn't though! So, we were next. We handed off what we wanted signed and his manager set it on the counter. I gave him my phone for him to take photos of us with Frank.  Little did I know that his manager caught the whole experience on fi…

Domestic Abuse Awareness Warriors Cover Reveal!

Image
Without further ado, Rock & Roll Saved My Soul would like to present the FOUR books that are being released October 2nd!

Fighting Chance -- A Rock & Roll Saved My Soul Anthology:

On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. this equates to more than 10 million women and men per year.
 Domestic violence isn’t just about being physically abused. It’s also about the emotional and psychological side, too. Come on a journey with others who have experienced domestic violence and are willing to share their stories, to show everyone else out there that they have a chance.

Fighting Chance is a book of stories and poetry for those who have dealt with domestic violence and are sharing how they stood up to it and have moved on with their life. It wasn’t easy for most of us. And some of us still may struggle with it, but we want to reach out to others who may be going through something similar and let them know you don’t have to pu…

Saving Isaiah

Image
Buy a cool shirt and help a cool kid. This story crossed my path via a good friend of mine.  At present I don't have the money to help, but someone out there might.   This campaign is for an 18 year old boy diagnosed two years ago with an ultra rare epileptic condition with high morbidity and exceptionally high risk of SUDEP (Sudden Un-explained Death in Epilepsy). All funds raised will all go towards medical and travel expenses. They have a goal of selling 50 shirts, with only 16 purchased thus far.  There are 27 days left.  If you can help, please do.  It would mean the world to myself (Kate), my friend, and Isaiah and his family.
