– Heroes in Jeans by Karl Eifrig
Jessica Christian from Virginia requested a song titled either “Dress Down Heroes” or “Heroes in Jeans” that would encourage faculty and staff at the school she works at to participate in “dress down” weeks. Staff can contribute $10 and get to dress casual for the week, and the money goes to Relay for Life, a cancer research charity. To craft this epic ballad, Karl enlisted Ryan Murphy on drums, Grant Sutton on bass, Sean Shipley on lead guitar and Josh Lawrence on brass keyboards/lyric tweaking.

– I Live Off You by Karl Eifrig
