The album is an emotional exploration from someone who finds themselves on the front line of a new, traumatised, confusing reality. To him, the album's not political - it's deeply personal.

Children's book - Four Feet, Two Sandals

Four Feet, Two Sandals was inspired by a refugee girl who asked the authors why there were no books about children like her. When relief workers bring used clothing to a refugee camp in Pakistan, ten-year-old Lina is thrilled when she finds a sandal that fits her foot perfectly - until she sees that another girl has the matching shoe. "Four Feet, Two Sandals" honors the experiences of refugee children.
