Promoting awareness of and research into aortic dissection disease, the songs of Paul Koors, and music education in songwriting.

This foundation was established in 2019 to honor the memory of Paul Koors, by his family and friends. Our goals are to raise money to support research into and awareness of aortic dissection disease, which claimed Paul's life suddenly and without warning in August of 2018.  Paul was a surgeon, musician and devoted family man.  We also want to support music education organizations dedicated to teaching songwriting. Paul's passion was writing songs, and he dreamed of performing them for people. He was just hitting his stride as a singer/guitarist/songwriter, so we want you to hear his music as well. read more about Paul...

Paul finished recording his 2nd album just weeks before he died. In the interim, producer Greg Howard has been mixing and mastering it, and getting it ready for release at the Charlottesville concert on October 12. Its eleven country-inflected rock songs are inspired by Paul's life, and deal with subjects like gratitude, self-doubt, and good old-fashioned heartbreak. 
Here is a sample of three songs, "New Orleans", "A Sane Woman", and "Irish Goodby".

Our Web Site is Up and Running.
