Daughters of Cambodia is a full length recording project of songs written for the young survivors of forced prostitution in Cambodia and the songs center around the ideas of healing, lifting oppressive stereotypes, and bringing this issue to light in the United States.

The project has begun with the writing of an album's worth of music that is currently being recorded. Musicians from around the country are involved in recording parts for the record, in addition to those here at home in St. Louis. Many amazing people are already donating their time and skills to this project. The studio time and production, is being offered by the amazing Teddy Presberg. The mixing, and mastering of the album has been donated by sound guru's Brad and Auset Sarno. The website hosting and design by Ryan Ashmore. This has helped considerably in being able to adjust our budget to a manageable amount.

My project is currently fund raising for the pressing of the new album cd, and the travel budget for myself and a photographer to travel to Cambodia this summer. While in Cambodia we will visit on the ground organizations that are working directly with victims of sex trafficking, doing rescue, providing safety, counseling and medical care. The trip will last approximately three weeks. During this time, I will perform these new songs from the album for the girls they were written for, rescued sex workers in three of the rescue centers run by the very well known Somaly Mam. While there, I hope to give some music classes to the girls at the center and to give them some recordings of the first songs I am working on, that they may feel there are people working in the world on their behalf.

Upon returning home I will be assembling the photos and video footage from the trip to create a multimedia project over which I will perform these songs I've written for a new multimedia tour, raising awareness for the problem of human trafficking and raising funds for the centers we visited in Cambodia.
