Topher Hall is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict and gives back by producing and singing songs that are about recovery. One day in December 2010, he was drinking vodka while waiting for his cocaine dealer; his life of active addiction ended this same day.
When his dealer didn’t show up that night, he left the parking lot and drove home. Just before getting home he crashed his car into a government vehicle and got arrested. He says, ““While I was in the hospital, I talked to myself, I talked to God. I knew the next time, I’d be dead.”
That moment of clarity has never gone away from Topher. He has remained sober and now goes to prisons to help spread the message of hope.
At Clearbrook we share in the belief that music and recovery go hand in hand. There are many things in life that remind us of our lives while we were in the grips of addiction. The people we choose to spend time with, the programs on TV that we watch, and the love of music are all things that we can still enjoy. We just need to change the “who, what and where” that we associated with during our active addiction. His song “Starting Now” is all about life in recovery and the start that we can make into a new life.
