So take all that healing power and double it, quadruple it. What if you wrote that song? What if those lyrics were your story? Sometimes a sentiment, a pain, a trauma, can only be released through song. AHERO Records is excited and proud to be launching this label, this songwriting ecosystem of talented, experienced, renowned professionals to guide our Vets and First Responders through the cathartic process of songwriting and recording, of peeling back layers of pain and trauma, to exorcise those demons, inspire faith, instill confidence, fulfillment and a renewed sense of purpose as a studio recorded songwriter.
Music offers insight into the military experience and the trials of coming home. Some of us use music to heal, some sing to connect with others… and some listen to just zone out and escape.
Songs created by our Veterans and service members reveal the scope of their struggle and sacrifice. Offered without self-pity, they enable healing and remind the rest of us that they are truly heroic Americans.
There are some amazing and talented artist in the Military, Veteran and First Responder community.
Their service and sacrifices along with demanding schedules, deployments and dedication to our communities and to our nation’s defense do not always allow them the chance to showcase and pursue their talents or to be recognized for their craft
...that’s where AHERO Records comes in.
At AHERO Records, we embrace the effective healing model, developed by Mr. Bob Regan , and OperationSong , that pairs individual Veterans with an accomplished musician in a comfortable setting to relate their story as part of a cathartic and relationship-building songwriting experience. The songs are then performed live during AHERO events, the Veteran gains a new coping tool while enjoying the experience, and the musician benefits by communicating his or her sense of appreciation for the Veteran’s service to the nation. We honor the groundbreaking work accomplished by Operation Song, and we are grateful to the dedicated professional singer/songwriters like Rusty Tabor , Jeff Silvey, Mike Corrado , and Kevin Adair who continue to support our Veterans and First Responders through Music4AHERO events.
We are a Veteran-operated record label whose artists are active military, honorably discharged veterans, and first responders. We assist our artists in writing, recording, distribution and promotion. We believe in the healing power of music and the musical talents and aspirations within many of those who serve.
AHERO Records is a program under the 501.c.3. non-profit organization AHERO. Proceeds from our music releases benefit organizations designed to heal the physical and psychological wounds of war and of military and first responder service.
Mike Corrado, a combat-seasoned Marine had always been Brave. But it wasn’t until he returned home from his second tour in Iraq, that he revealed just how fearless he really was. Because as soon as Mike stepped back onto U.S. soil, he stepped out on a huge limb writing and performing songs that unearthed the kind of subject matter most returning soldiers never want to talk about — reopening wounds ignorer to heal them. And through Mike realized he would stir up a lot of anger, darkness and pain, he also knew he could help his fellow soldiers cope with their demons in a way that was a little less daunting. At the helm of AHERO Records, Mike is throwing the net wider to shepherd a new generation of up-and-coming veteran songwriters.
