I have created a fundraiser in support of CAMH: the Center for Addiction and Mental Health based in Toronto, Ontario Canada titled “Believe In What You Want” that kicks off officially on Sunday March 13th, 2022 (that’s this weekend!).
This fundraiser will run conjointly with the release of the Jaimee Eat World discography with our target completion date being March 13th, 2024.

Save The Date: Jaimee Eat World is Hitting the Stage!
On March 13th, 2024, as the project concludes I’ll be performing a Jimmy Eat World cover song set, which, much like the discography I’m putting together I intend to be a mix of full band, duo & solo acoustic performances. The show will of course also be in support of the Believe In What You Want fundraiser and I’ll be selling limited runs of the official discography at the event.
A brief blurb about the Jaimee Eat World project:
In 2021 I started a project called Jaimee Eat World where I self-produce, perform, record, and mix my reimagination of the entire Jimmy Eat World discography. I came up with the idea after deciding to get sober from alcohol in March 2020, and I very much cite the music of this band and many of my other favourite songwriters as a large part of the reason I was able to come to terms with my own addiction and make the first real steps towards kicking the habit.
I believe that with the right support system and some form of creative outlet or passion, every single person struggling with mental health and addiction can overcome it, and that’s what this entire project is all about.
How you can get involved:
You can create your own Jimmy Eat World cover song (alone or with a group!) and promote it using the hashtag #BelieveInWhatYouWant on social media. You can also send it in to me via e-mail for consideration on the official Jaimee Eat World & Friends Compilation Album (Official title TBD) to be released in 2022!
The proceeds of the album will also go towards this fundraiser.
Every bit of awareness helps the project and I very much appreciate your support.
