The Great Unknown releases youth collaboration/benefit album


In fall 2010, Philly-based band The Great Unknown headlined a five-city tour for the ASCAP Songwriter Residency @ America SCORES, a program that allows musicians to collaborate with youth in under-resourced neighborhoods. Each stop on the 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 Great Unknown’s new album Other Voices, Other Rooms, which features lyrics written entirely by America SCORES students. The EP will be made available tomorrow, July 19th, for a price of your choosing. The Great Unknown will be donating all proceeds to the ASCAP Songwriter Residency @ America SCORES.
