"Other Voices, Other Rooms" released tomorrow!
The ASCAP Songwriter Residency at America SCORES hosted Philadelphia-based band The Great Unknown at 5 America SCORES cities. Together, America SCORES poet-athletes and The Great Unknown created original songs which can be heard on the new EP Other Voices, Other Rooms available for download starting tomorrow!
Each stop of the band's Fall 2010 tour included three days of collaborative songwriting and recording between students and the band. The band worked with students from elementary and middle schools in Washington DC, Cleveland, Milwaukee, New York City and Boston. Five of the resulting original songs appear on the EP, which features lyrics written entirely by America SCORES poet-athletes.
The EP will be available for download starting tomorrow on The Great Unknown's website. While the download is availabe at a name-your-own-price amount, all proceeds will go toward the ASCAP Songwriter Residency at America SCORES!
This first commercial release from the ASCAP @ America SCORES program is also being streamed online in its entirety all this week thanks to Spinner/AOL.
