This vision quickly spawned interest from like minded companies with great brands who wanted to be part of the mission and as such the VFOB came to life! Check out our mission, our family of companies, our VFOB dealers, and get info on memberships at

Blackbird Anthem is an independent, Alt-Country band from Florida. Their music is a blend of outlaw country, southern rock, and blues. Fronted by lead singer / songwriter Adam Martin, Blackbird Anthem’s songs are tales of love, loss, regrets and redemption.

A U.S. Army combat veteran, Adam taught himself to play guitar after returning home from Iraq. A few years later, he began writing songs and performing live. He formed Blackbird Anthem with bassist David Bruce and later added Cody Owens on drums. Their debut EP, Stories I’ve Never Told, was released in early 2016, and is available worldwide across multiple digital media platforms including iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.

Their single, “Come Kiss Me” was featured on the syndicated radio program “The Iceman Show” and has been added to their normal rotation. They have been featured on HV Rebel Country Radio’s New Artist Spotlight and several of their songs are regularly played on multiple internet radio stations.

Blackbird Anthem has performed throughout Florida and is starting to play stages across the country. They have opened for several national touring artists and have played at multiple music festivals. They have recently returned to the studio to be begin work on their first full-length album.

“We could not be more excited and proud to be accepted into the Veterans Family of Brands,” stated Adam Martin. “The continued brotherhood, supportive structure, and mutual growth opportunities of VFOB is something we absolutely believe in. It will also allow us to continue give back and support many veteran foundations. We joined VFOB to not only be a part of what can be described as a growing movement of veteran owned / operated business but to also develop partnerships and efforts to cross-promote our products and services with like-minded individuals. Blackbird Anthem is very supportive of several veteran foundations so this aspect of VFOB was very appealing to us as well.”

Martin continued, “Blackbird Anthem is the first entertainer to join VFOB so we bring a very unique offering to the family. Of course we have the traditional band merchandise of CD’s, t-shirts, stickers and koozies but our passion for live performances and audience engagement is a huge strength. We can play for any size venue / crowd for both public and private events, as a headliner or support band. VFOB brands will have the opportunity to partner will us to put their brand / products in front of a variety of new audiences / consumers wherever we play.”

Blackbird Anthem is a great group, and one with a passion for Vets and their families built into the fabric of their persona and music.
