New Release Soon

Just a quick update on my march to help raise funds for Ukraine. It’s just about ready to record over this weekend. I plan to upload it to CDBaby for distribution on Monday if all goes well.

So, look for Great Defenders of Ukraine March on your favorite streaming service or on YouTube in a couple of weeks. It will be released under my full name (for legal purposes) Robert Cooper Rivard.

Royalties will be shared with UNITED24, a charity created by the government of Ukraine to help the war effort and rebuilding. I plan to direct my donations to be used for education.

So, please Stream for Victory!
