Written by husband-and-wife team Ivy Vale (book, lyrics and music) and Rick Reil (music), Out of My Comfort Zone was conceived out of a desire to do something in response to the bullying epidemic and rise in youth suicide.
The mission of the project is to open up dialogues within families, provide a safe way for kids to talk to their parents about how they are treated at school, and prevent young people from falling into depression and suicide. Children need support and are afraid to ask for it. We must address this issue through art. Out of My Comfort Zone addresses this through music, humor and relatable teenage characters.
