Matt Glickstein, a songwriter/composer from Hawaii, has just released “Steppingstone: A Benefit Ballad for Japan” on iTunes. A majority of the proceeds will be donated to The Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. Accompanying the song is a Youtube video, which illustrates the tragic events in Japan. Singer-songwriter Stasia Estep is the featured vocalist.
Matt, who lives in Lanai City, Hawaii, was on the island of Oahu with his wife, Kerri, when the earthquake and subsequent tsunami struck in Japan. A warning was issued for the Hawaiian islands, but the damage sustained was nothing compared to the devastation that rocked Japan. Inspired by the fortitude, discipline, cooperation, and endurance of the Japanese people, Matt felt it necessary to compose a tribute song dedicated to the people of Japan. The music speaks to the soul and tells the story of the tragedy, while offering a sense of hope.
By purchasing the song on iTunes (also available for sale on Matt’s website), people can play a small part in the recovery efforts for Japan so that families can soon gather again to create new and lasting memories. Matt is confident that the Japanese people will rebuild quickly and create a stronger community than ever before.
