“I am an abuse survivor and my music is about 
empowering and uplifting people,” said Faulconer.

endured and my struggles with being adopted.

Assault Treatment Services (CATS) at Northridge Hospital Medical

abuse in the San

movement and anti-abuse group on Facebook, too. It’s called, 
“Revolution Against Abuse”

“My music is really an expression of the abusive experiences I have
had over the years,” said Faulconer. I support any benefit programs 
that aim to prevent child abuse and neglect before it starts.”

Music Channel Awards for "Best Rock Artist" and "Best Pop Song."

lead guitar, Mike Talanca on bass, and Blake Padveen on drums. 
Faulconer is working on a new album release this fall entitled, 
“Phoenix”, and some of the songs are posted on iTunes.

show in November. Sponsors for Faulconer’s charity event 
include:   Joel Mosely/Personal Trainer, The Sound Bakery 
Production, and David Dance Italy.
The winners are selected by a panel of judges and fans can

having a great race day,” said Falconer.  For more about
