“I just threw my phone out the window…it’s out…I can’t believe it!” Pollak exclaims. “Steve Jobs’ quote no longer haunts me from the screensaver on my computer. He said ‘Real Artists Ship’ and by that definition, I am no longer an imposter. The deep sense of pride that I’ve longed for since I first heard ‘Gravity’ by John Mayer back in 2004 is here. A year of dark times filled with confusion, frustration, divorce, pain, isolation, and the gamut…that weight, that gravity, has been lifted with the release of this album. The ship has sailed…and on top of it, I got to include some of my favorite people in the world, my closest tribeswomen and men.”
“The cherry on top is that this piece is all for charity,” adds Pollak. “100% of proceeds are going to CASA to support abused and neglected children stuck in the foster care system. Only $3,000 gives a child their own healthy and stable adult mentor FOR A YEAR – that’s crazy! If nothing else, please donate if you can – every dollar counts! As of last night, we’ve already raised enough money to support one child; let’s see how many kids in total we can help! The little ones need us most right now. They deserve someone who is always there for them when everyone else isn’t. And if you can’t donate, #streamwhileyoudream. Play the EP on repeat with the volume loud or down, when you’re doing the dishes, sleeping, working out, at the grocery store, when you’re having a snack or playing video games – whatever, whenever, wherever. You can help make a difference, just keep the music going. We only have one shot at this life and I hope you’ll join me in giving these kids a real shot of their own this holiday season. Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukkah!”
