I couldn’t be prouder to introduce you to “When Facing the Things We Turn Away From”; a project that grew out of a year of enforced stillness.
It will be released everywhere August 13. Today, you can hear a first taste of the album; “Starting Line”.
Today we are proud to partner with our friend Sanyu Nicholas on a new merch range in which 100% of profits will benefit @MPJInstitute, now live on wearefof.com. We are proud to stand alongside you while making a difference in our world –– thank you for your support.
We started @wearefof over a year ago as a vehicle to create community on a local and global level, raising awareness and money for a variety of causes while celebrating the people & projects who inspire us.
