“Rick Lockwood’s latest CD Welcome To The Now is an eight track excursion through his musical imagination. If the artistry isn’t enough of a reason to purchase this CD, consider this: Lockwood is donating all of his profits from this recording to Heroes In Transition, an organization that assists veterans when they return home.” - Bill Copeland
