Mari Fong interviews Yesod Williams (Pepper, LAW Records) & Kellie Nowell (The Nowell Family Foundation, Bradley's House). Yesod Williams shares his story and solutions on alcoholism and depression. Growing up seeing his mother's alcoholism, Yesod Williams slides into alcoholism after her death. With 9 years of abuse, Yesod's drummer friend Adam O'Rourke of 2Cents gave him the direction and advice that started his detox from alcohol.

After hitting rock bottom, Yesod changed his lifestyle, nutrition, and exercise. Depression was part of his withdrawal from alcohol, but he kept moving forward. Yesod's LAW Records dropped a new compilation CD entitled, "The House That Bradley Built" with artists singing acoustic Sublime songs. The proceeds will go to Bradley's House, an opioid rehab center for musicians, as a tribute to Bradley Nowell, lead singer of Sublime who died in 1996 of a heroin overdose.

Kellie Nowell, sister of Brad of Sublime, talks about family addictions and fond memories of brother Brad. Our featured song is "Rivers of Babylon" sung by Jake and Jim "Papa" Nowell, a highlight on  "The House That Bradley Built" Deluxe CD that can be purchased at law-records.com.
