We LOVE this!!!

the Wood Buffalo Youth Song Project picsBack in March two very cool singer songwriters – New Brunswick native Thom Swift and Nova Scotia’s Keith Mullins took their craft to the kids - visiting 10 schools in 10 days throughout the Municipality of Wood Buffalo, Alberta.

Each morning they would meet with a different group of children and create a song from scratch.  And these songs are incredible! You can listen to a samplin’ of just 2 of the 10 amazing tunes above.

These sessions allowed the school kids to explore all kinds of themes like love and family and heritage and then convey their feelings...from mind, to paper, to music – so truly COOL!!!

The students’ voices were recorded, followed by the songwriters’ voices and instruments – and every song was written, performed and recorded within one day! (What a 'realty show' that would have been!!!)

The Wood Buffalo Youth Song Project is available on CD and your purchase will assist school programs and youth support initiatives in the municipality….not to mention increase your collection of awesome music!

Congratulations to all involved and cheers to Mr. Swift and Mr. Mullins – good on ya fellas – sharing your gift like that means your presence will be felt in that community for a long long time!!! SABS
