Winston-Salem working moms will be very interested to hear about this local project that benefits the local community, musicians and non-profit organizations! Two local businesses, Across the Horizons and SoundLizzard Productions, are collaborating to create a Christmas CD filled with tracks from local Winston-Salem musicians of various musical genres and will be very family friendly.
Across the Horizons & SoundLizzard Productions state, “Winston-Salem, The City of the Arts, has so many talented musicians that we wanted to bring them all together to offer the community one album and thought what better time to do that than Christmas! This type of album and collaboration among artists has not been done in Winston-Salem so we are very excited about it and think the community will LOVE it!” For more information about the project be sure to check out the Sounds of the Season in Winston-Salem’s Facebook Page, Twitter Profile and Website.
The album is titled Sounds of the Season in Winston-Salem and will contain 10 or 11 tracks. Local musicians signed on to feature a song include: Easy Street Apothecary, Gulley, Khiana Meyer, The Camel City Collective, Chad Morris Band, Doug Davis, Lauren Light, Drew Holgate, The Genuine and Michael Breedlove (Winston-Salem Monthly magazine editor).An added bonus to the Winston-Salem community is that the majority of the profits from the CD and launch parties will be given to local non-profits and charities, which include Triad Musicians Matter, Wake Forest Baptist Health-Brenner Children’s Hospital, and Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC.
To make this project a reality Across the Horizons and SoundLizzard Productions will be launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds. The Kickstarter will offer a lot of fun rewards and allow those in Winston-Salem to pre-purchase the CD! Friday August 28 is the last day the Kickstarter will run so check it out today! Click here for the Kickstarter campaign link. One such reward includes purchasing tickets to a VIP reception on Friday November 13 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Brookstown Inn. Ticket to the VIP reception include hearing & receiving the album first before anyone else plus an evening of fun (potentially live music from one or two of the musicians) with a drink ticket for 2 drinks. Cost $100. Tickets will exclusively be sold to this event on the Kickstarter campaign. This could be a great opportunity for working moms to have a night out on the town.
Across the Horizons and SoundLizzard also said sometime after the VIP reception in mid-November they will host a family friendly concert including the musicians from the album. The event will include hay rides, hot chocolate, cider, drives for food and toys for the local community, and more. This event and the album itself makes for a project any working mom in Winston-Salem would want to be a part of!
