Hello,
My name is Jesse Hayes. I am a twenty-six year old suicidal schizophrenic according to the doctors. I have these strange and unexplainable experiences that doctors can only deem a psychological malfunction. I have gained a new philosophical outlook on life based on my experiences. I can see the shadows of people, or I like to believe that their the outlines of human beings so I can establish who is doing what to me. A priest told me it was demons, a psychologist told me it was hallucinations, a voodoo shaman told me they were the spirits of the dead, some pagans told me it was a curse that I was hexed with, some Wikens said it was black magic. So I am stuck without a true answer. I can smell abnormal aromas around me that no one else seems to take notice of. I can feel cuts into my flesh, but no cut is visible. I can hear voices that come from the sky and around me that no one else seems to hear. I have zero control over my emotions and can feel my body experience torture while I have to sit back and experience the torture also. Seeing as people deem me crazy, I keep my experiences to myself, hoping one day it will kill me to rid me of my misery. I have made six suicide attempts because of my experiences. I had a philosophy that when I died, my pain would stop. I also have a philosophy that I should be able to choose whether or not I want to live the rest of my life this way and not be forced to live through the torture. At times when my emotions are in a uproar are the times I want to die the most. It helps me with my attempts at suicide. I have taken medication and seen numerous doctors but it doesn't change my experiences. It helped them build. So I no longer take medication because my experiences are less without them. Since I have no one that can truly relate to my lifestyle or talk to about my experiences that would truly understand, I put my theories, experiences, and what I would like to do into music as a sort of outlet. I feel better knowing that someone out there who listens to me is hearing what I am saying. Indirectly talking to them. I don't feel as if I have that much time left to live seeing as how my body is taking a beating. In theory, I should be, or close to dead by the age of thirty. So I am sending my music in hopes that I can make it before I die. If people are able to listen to the music then I can be discovered. If not, it was a good shot, and I tried. I sometimes lose touch with reality and come to believe that everything is fake. That my life is a form of inception and I only wake up from this dream when I die. I have heard around me that this is fake, and can hear whispers in my ear telling me to kill myself because this is fake. It has happened for so long that I came to believe these voices that I have been hearing. This may be one of the causes of my death that is soon to come. I seek help, but all help received is rendered useless. At times I enjoy believing that this is all fake to make up for the horrible life I lived, but the life I lived is another topic.

Dolla Bill

Artist Bio Will Francis (Dolla Bill) started listening to music at the age of ten. His older sister had vinyl records cassette tapes that were popular during that time. These were his first influences that began to shape his musical awareness and creativity. At the age of sixteen, he started learning how to play guitar, writing lyrics and emulating the lyrical themes and vocal styles of bands and front men that were popular  among his circle of friends. He tried out for a few bands as a vocalist but didn’t have the right type of voice for the kind of music he was trying to cover. However, he began to evolve as a composer with emphasis on lyric writing and song structure. Will graduated high school and earned an associates degree in English/Writing from the Sussex County Community College in New Jersey. In academia, he was introduced to authors, literature, culture and ideas that were very different from those he had come up with during his teenage years. Beatnik authors/poets, existentialism, music of the late sixties and both, European and American writers circa late 1800’s thru 1950’s were course curriculum. As a songwriter, this experience had a very significant impact on Will and his craft. This event marked a shift from a linear hard rock mainstream influence to a more intellectual or analytical approach with regard theme, style and musical composition. After Will transferred and finished his studies at the William Paterson University, he joined the real world and started working in the pharmaceutical industry. He continued writing, recording and performing original compositions/covers in the NYC open mic and showcase circuit. Furthermore, he auditioned and was cast in small roles for TV, commercial, voice over talent and independent films. As a songwriter, Will was able to record enough material for his first album “Behind the Personas.” At first, this was an easy listening/lounge and singer/songwriter project. However, it evolved to include hip hop/rap tracks that really showcased style, theme and originality his music. Will was featured on Artist First Radio Network 2014, SDC Radio Network 2013 and a spot on a few mix tapes with music from his first album. Will Francis(Dolla Bill) has been evolving as a composer and lyric writer and is currently, writing, rapping, making people laugh and recording his mixes for the whole world to hear.

The American Drug War: The Last White Hope Soundtrack CD (All Genres/All Formats):

https://soundcloud.com/americandrugwar/sets/american-drug-war-the-last

The Sunset Records Soundtrack division has compiled music, songs and an incredible DJ-RX mix of the hit song, “White Lines” (Grandmaster Flash) song, with George Bush, Jr. on vox.

“One person can't make an entire movement by themselves,” (Don) Lichterman states. “I realize that it takes more than one person to build a movement and build something bigger than one self, which is why I am grateful to the participants on the soundtrack, and I am especially grateful to Kevin (Booth) for allowing me to use my resources to do my part to spread the word.”

Kevin Booth is not only the writer, producer, director, narrator on the award winning documentary film, American Drug War: The Last White Hope, he is also a participant on the soundtrack CD with his “Drug War I,” song collaborated with Nick Knoc. From his (Kevin Booth) own ambient, electronic styled song, to other eclectic, yet edgy songs on the CD that are alternative songs, rap songs, hip/hop songs, let alone the Blind Willy Johnson classic blues track, “Dark Is The Night.” The album appropriately starts off with a song by the newest Sunset Urban recording artist, Phillip Morris rapping his; “A Dysfunctional Family Affair” which (Don) Lichterman says, “is a song that tells this entire story.” The CD continues with other recognizable tracks from the film like Da-Watchman’s distinctive, “V-Town Krack Haus” and the “Intro Secret Sauce” track by Beat Banga. If the statement made by (Don) Lichterman, (Kevin) Booth and Sunset Records on this soundtrack CD release does not say enough, the documentary film is also a “a must see” says (Don) Lichterman, “this (American Drug War: The Last White Hope) documentary film, and the 'The Corporation' are two of the most important documentary films released over the last decade and honestly, everyone needs to see them both in their life.” “Overall though,” says (Don) Lichterman, “no one needs to watch the film or listen to the CD itself in order to have a strong liberal viewpoint about the legalization of marijuana today and how private prisons work to create a criminal justice system that aims to get people in their facilities, let alone works to keep people in that system, in a very pro active way.”

The songs on the CD definitely go across many formats, they were all chosen for their lasting impacting message and even though some of the songs are not necessarily tied to the drug theme or about using marijuana, Don Lichterman (head of Sunset Records) says to “listen to songs like 'A Dysfunctional Family Affair'” by the Chicago native, Phillip Morris, “which I put first on the album for the sole reason that he raps about criminal justice system in not only a creative way, he also sends his message in a concise way.” But then (Don) Lichterman says, “most of all, these are not songs about smoking pot and partying Charlie Sheen style, this is all aimed to send out what is a very important message for people to know about how our criminal justice system works today.” The obvious anthem and theme song by hip-hop / rap artist, Phillip Morris is first track on a CD with all original compositions, except of course, for incredibly produced DJ-RX mix of the popular rap song by Grandmaster Flash, “White Lines” done with Gorge Bush Jr. on vocals (taken and spliced together from speeches (George, Jr.) Bush had as President). Songs both accompanying the title credits of the film at the beginning of it, throughout the film, and music played at the end are also featured on the soundtrack CD. Even though the CD is being worked to radio across many formats, the hope is that it will also set up the urge to want to watch the documentary film (Currently at Netflix and available in stores like Amazon, etc.). There is no real way of getting away from the context in the film; however, the soundtrack CD, let alone the subject matter in the film are memorable work and great productions.
