A new album, with the mission of healing veterans through music and arts, makes its debut this Saturday featuring local young musicians. 

Local singer and guitarist 13-year-old Lillie Fouts joined Local 5 This Morning with a live performance ahead of Saturday’s Warrior Songs release party. 

She and 15-year-old Peyton Michler teamed up through the Appleton Rock School to collaborate with Warrior Songs to create the song, Where is Your Heart

They’ll both perform Saturday at the High Noon Saloon in Madison. The CD release party runs from 12 – 5 p.m. For more information on the event’s Facebook Page

Warrior Songs is a non-profit organization committed to facilitating healing veterans through music and the creative arts.

Their mission is to “assist veterans in more fully understanding and integrating all aspects of the military experience by transforming their traumatic experiences and struggles into an art form which both inspires and is life-affirming, thus motivating their continued healing.”

This CD is a collaborative effort between women veterans and artists who are talented in storytelling and music. “In listening to our stories, you become part of our community. We need you. When you listen to our stories, you lessen our individual burdens. In hearing us, you help each of us begin the long journey towards finally being home,” organizers said on the Warrior Songs website.
