Crowdfunding will allow Adam to record an EP and create a music video in honor of his stepfather, Mitchell Schneider, who lost his 5-year battle with pancreatic cancer on Christmas day 2014. Adam’s wish is to also donate part of the proceeds from the sale of his EP to pancreatic cancer research in his stepfather’s name.
Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/05/2015 -- Adam felt very fortunate he had a close relationship with his stepfather. He considered him a caring friend and a wise advisor. That's why the news of his stepfather's pancreatic cancer diagnosis hit him particularly hard. For those who don't know, pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly forms of cancer; the survival rate is just 1%. Most patients with stage-4 pancreatic cancer never make it past a few months, so for Mitch to make it almost 5 years was an incredible feat. Mitch's courage, determination, perseverance, wit, humor, and strength inspired Adam to write several songs in his honor.
Adam's burning desire is to record a five-song EP and music video as a salute to his hero. As part of this tribute, Adam is donating part of the proceeds from the sale of his EP to the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Research. His ultimate goal is for his songs to help others who are facing their own difficult life challenges.
Adam is fortunate to be able to work with the same talented team of Stuart Epps and Matt Coe who produced one of the songs for the EP, "Dreamers," which speaks about how, "love can save the world." Although the team is flexible with regard to costs of the EP production, the price tag to bring this inspirational EP to market is far too high for Adam to handle on his own, so crowdfunding is being enlisted to help cover the costs of studio time, editing, final production and release of the EP. Adam feels Mitch would have been extremely touched that this project is dedicated to him and to finding a cure for pancreatic cancer.
This crowdfunding campaign ends on January 16, 2015.

About Adam Exler Goodley
It was upon hearing B.B. King's "The Thrill Is Gone" at the age of twelve that Adam Goodley first heard passion and soul the likes of which he had never heard before. That experience inspired him to want to express himself through music and the keyboard became his instrument of choice. After graduating as an honor student and tennis star from the Buckley School, (he spent a semester at the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy and while there was chosen as a member of the US National High School Championship team,) Adam attended the Grove school of music where he developed his skills for singing and songwriting.
