Heyday Media Group is excited to announce its newest release on the company’s record label, NocturnalSol —a project called In This Together. In This Together is a compilation to benefit Sound Art, a unique non-profit organization devoted to providing underprivileged inner city youth a comprehensive, hands-on music education taught by industry professionals. Where budget cuts are creating voids in music education, Sound Art is stepping in to keep music alive as an empowering creative outlet for self-discovery, community involvement, and change.
True to its spirit, In This Together will give 30% of all proceeds to Sound Art, and the remainder will be divided equally among all of the contributing artists and Heyday. The project features an array of artists including Sound Art’s very own youth performance group (Breed Street Rookies), who wrote and recorded the title track, “In This Together.” The compilation also spotlights original, unreleased recordings from Heyday artists as well as voices from around the globe (including from St. Lucia, Ireland, Spain, The Netherlands, the United Kingdom).
According to Heyday Founder and President, it is through their mission that Sound Art and Heyday align -- coming together in the name of music and our youth.
The Breed Street Rookies are comprised of Sound Art students ages 11 to 18 who joined together with the intention of writing and recording original songs for this compilation. Under the guidance of their instructors Jeff Smith and Justin David, the Rookies learned the art of songwriting and composed the theme song "In This Together" as well as "One for All". Writing and rehearsing in an old synagogue on Breed Street in Boyle Heights, the group has gone on to compose a whole set of songs and perform around Los Angeles.
