ALL THE BEST FOR 2011!!
Excerpts from Founder’s Story
Playing for Change started with an effort to capture moments on the streets of America that normally “slipped through the cracks” of our society. We would start a song in one location, and then take the recording studio and the partially completed song on to the next musician. Through this process it became apparent that as a human race, we all have music in common. Stereotypes fell apart, minds were expanded, and great music was created as we brought each song to another musician, and then another.
As we continued to travel and meet more and more extraordinary musicians in the United States, it became apparent that this project was bigger than any one country. We decided that we needed to continue our travels around the world, meet and record new musicians, and continue to grow our songs along the way.
