Hello, beloved. Kathy and I are out on our 5th Limitless Love & Light mini-tour, currently enjoying the weather in Richmond, VA… and we have some updates for you, as well as our thanks to those who have supported us on this tour so far (including the talented and generous Amy Steinberg, Unity of the Triangle and all our family & friends):
Only 4 spots left in the mansion for our all-inclusive 3-day Big Glow: Limitless Love & Light retreat. You can also choose camping for all 3 days or a one-day pass here.

In This Place
Both Sides of the Story
Lose Your Mind
The band formed on New Year’s Eve, 1999, under the name JaD (pronounced “jade”) as a Hard Rock band and later changed the name to State of Man when we began writing more top 40 style Rock songs. Once my son was born and the economy took a turn in 2009, I stopped touring with the band to stay home with my family and we (the band) eventually disbanded.
I spoke to James Beale, the bass player, recently and we decided to give the music away since a lot of people have been requesting where to buy it.
I hope you enjoy the music and, if you haven’t already, don’t forget to check out my debut solo album, “Limitless Love & Light,” here:
If you’re familiar with my debut solo album, “Limitless Love & Light,” you may enjoy following the lyrics I recently posted here.
Also, if you bought a physical CD (or digital copy directly from me here), then you also have a bonus track that contains a special link to more downloadable music. I’ve recently updated the page to contain two more songs for your enjoyment! Don’t know what I’m talking about, listen to the bonus track and visit the url to find out.
FYI, iTunes and other online retailers wouldn’t allow me to distribute the bonus track because it mentioned the url. That’s apparently against their policies.
I’m excited to announce the new PolyPlat Records “Share in the Abundance” program I recently launched to support those who enjoy my debut solo album, “Limitless Love & Light.” As you may know, the music from “Limitless Love & Light” was designed to help you raise your consciousness, align with the divine and clarify your purpose; while the “Share in the Abundance” program is designed to help you raise additional finances to support living that purpose.
Here’s more from the PolyPlat Records site:
“After helping independent artists for over a decade under Indiehitmaker.com (PolyPlat Records ADSD, LLC), former co-founder and partner, John Stringer, turned the reins of IHM over to co-founder, Bram Bessoff, so John could focus on his path in personal development and music. In doing so, John decided to follow his inspiration to turn the parent label, PolyPlat Records, into a platform where artists and fans could share in the abundance the artists’ music and services create.
As a result, the “Share in the Abundance” program was launched that allows anyone to invest in PolyPlat Records for a nominal fee ($22) and in exchange, earn a full 50% on all digital music sales and memberships generated from that partner’s affiliate link. In addition, Partners can earn 10% on all other referred sales for services like concerts, workshops, speaking engagements and even music sync licensing (for non-profit organizations).
Our first music offering is John Stringer’s debut solo album, “Limitless Love & Light.” Partners can share this album and the other related services in the PolyPlat Records Shop by simply joining the “Share in the Abundance” program. Interested in Joining? Learn more here.
Whether you are a music lover who likes to share inspiring music, a faith-based organization or another non-profit committed to sharing more love and light, we invite you to join the “Share in the Abundance” program today .” Click here for details.
I’m delighted to share with you all that today, the Atlanta-based organization, Special Needs Certified (SNC) announced they have selected “That’s Love” as the organization’s official song. Woohoo!
Read the full press release here and/or click the image below to go to the SNC Facebook post to show your support by giving them a like:
As the Our Story page on the organization’s website explains, Special Needs Certified, works to “educate businesses, cities, churches, volunteers and other organizations to better understand, engage with and serve people with special needs.”
My hope has been that the music would support others in spreading love and light just like SNC and founder, Lindsey Turner, have been doing for some time now.
I’m truly grateful the music so many of you helped me record via our Kickstarter campaign is able to help spread their message of love and acceptance and I look forward to continuing supporting their work.
If you are an individual, business, city, church, volunteer or part of another organization that you think could benefit from learning how to better engage special needs families, please visit https://www.specialneedscertified.com to learn more.
