Songs in the Key of Free is made possible by you. It's the voices of those on the inside, the talent of our musicians and songwriters, the financial support from our donors and the shared passion on social media that makes this possible. Only with our voices together can we achieve greatness. So raise your voice and join us in song.
Songs in the Key of Free, The Album is launching January 2020! Our stellar producers are mixing now and we're expecting the 15-song LP to be ready soon. We hope you'll consider a donation at this crucial time for Songs. We need funds for the following:
The incarcerated musicians cannot download the album digitally, so our most cherished mission right now is to raise funds to create 150 hard copies (a CD), with cover and illustrated liner notes to distribute to the musicians and their families.
While the musicians cannot receive monies directly, we are planning to set up a trust for royalties that the musicians could share if/when they are released. It will mean the world to these men to be paid royalties for the heart and soul they put into these songs.
We're planning a Launch Concert for the Album, and we're committed to paying all justice-involved musicians to rehearse for the concert. The Songs in the Key of Free Outside Band is largely made up of returning citizens, and funds can be tight for them as they come out, so we want to pay them for their time and reimburse them for transportation.

Any amount you can give will help us reach our goals!
