The Sound Mind Network
The Sound Mind Network was born from loss. In 2017, entrepreneur and TV personality, Tony Luke Jr., lost his son to a heroin overdose. He worked through his grief by creating music. After reaching out to Grammy Award-winning producer Joe “The Butcher” Nicolo via Facebook, the duo began collaborating on Tony’s music and joined forces with Joe DiGiacomo to form the 501c3 nonprofit. Not only was putting emotions into music therapeutic for Tony, but they also soon realized the tremendous healing power of music needed to be shared.
Sound Mind Network has a powerful mission to inspire those struggling with addiction and mental health issues. They plan on using their passion as a creative-based recovery alternative to creating a world in which those struggling with mental health issues, addiction, and trauma are empowered and viewed as strong individuals with a purpose.
