How are you?
I am a Firefighter/EMT and recent graduate from the Fire Academy at IRSC. I grew up making music and since I am still on the hunt for a fire job, I found myself inspired to make Firefighter Tribute Songs to honor this amazing industry. Here is a link to my website where you can hear and see my songs and videos. I hope you enjoy them.
