Red Fang Wrote a Song with Young Music Students
The dudes in Red Fang have always seemed like swell fellows, and their latest project only confirms it: they teamed up with students at My Voice Music, a non-profit in their native Portland, OR, to write, record and release a song they all collaborated on.
My Voice Music (MVM) teaches youth ages 5-17 to write, record, and release original songs. Why? Because the act of setting an idea down on paper, rehearsing it, collaborating with others, getting feedback on it, and finally releasing it through recordings and/or performance is transformative. It empowers people and changes lives. It’s that simple. Our vision is that all youth have the opportunity to find and share their artistic voice.
How awesome is that? While there are plenty of so-called “Schools of Rock” operating in the US right now, as far as I’m aware most of them are for-profit. And I haven’t seen any that bring in a band of Red Fang’s stature to work with the students directly on an original composition.
Listen to the collaboration below, entitled “Crop Circles,” with an entertaining music video to boot.
