    Now in his third year of sobriety, Abrams previously announced his split from the group he founded and a renewed commitment to inspiring others and bringing awareness to the injustices within substance use and mental health treatment through his music. Abrams’ solo music debut comes after spending several years taking the power back over his life in his journey of recovery. Passing up many opportunities over the last 30 years out of loyalty to the band he helped create, Abrams recalls declining a recording deal offered by the late, legendary Andre Harrell. 

    “I’m extremely grateful to be able to finally share my music with the world during the holidays. I’m beyond thankful for another chance at life, and to create a legacy my wife and children can be proud of,” Abrams shared candidly. “Songwriting has always been my outlet, and with this new adventure, I’m excited to share songs from my vault accumulated after 25 years and new collaborations in the future.”
