Greenhand Band (Live from TAFE NSW Eora College Theatre)

Poverty, racism and inequality are cornerstone concepts Redfern-based reggae fusion group Green Hand Band aims to break down barriers about. Drawing musical influences from soul, reggae and desert rock genres, the group uses music to raise awareness of issues such as recovering from addiction, spiritual empowerment, love and social justice. Key writer, keyboard player and vocalist, Tim Gray leads the band bringing an infectious passion to the stage.

The Gumbaynggir/Wiradjuri man born in Macksville, NSW, and growing up in East Hills along the Georges River, Tim was influenced by the likes of Bob Marley, Warumpi Band and Coloured Stone. He started playing piano at his foster mother’s prompting and the music grabbed a hold of him; he started writing his own songs and playing in bands. “I want to make music that heals, that breaks down barriers and explores the human condition,” Tim says

The Greenhand Band are graduates from TAFE NSW EORA college Performance course. They are performing four original tracks as part of Make Music Day 2020.

* Barraminya, * Getting Warmer, * Water is Life, * Second Nature

I know why

‘I know why’ is the lead track from Rock Farm Road‘s debut album ‘Light my Way’ released independently by Paul and Danielle Kneipp In November 2019. The album has ten uplifting songs played by excellent Sydney musicians Rex Goh, Jeffrey Bartolomei, and Mark Costa. This song is about watching the love in your family grow.

If I Give My Heart To You?

This is a short and sweet statement of commitment (though asked as a question) recorded at Woodstack Studios, on the South Coast of NSW on a Kawai grand. It’s the top download from my Soundcloud music website (stevecrumpmusic.com) so I guess some people like it – hope you do too.

IN THE DEEP END

Electronic music artist Jamie Lee Wilson aka JVMIE watched the pandemic loom over her LA-based life. After much deliberation, and seeing lines down the block from local gun stores, she returned to Australia. Where some may have found the experience overwhelming, for Jamie it led to the creation of an entire album, most of which was written and recorded during her time in quarantine.

With the help of a mini-grant from Home of the Arts on the Gold Coast, Jamie was able to collaborate with musical counterparts on the other side of the world.

JVMIE collaborated remotely with LA based film composer, Lionel Cohen fusing elements of electronic music with cinematic textures. The isolation project involved some serious ‘outside the box’ creativity, at one point even milk was involved.

“For the In The Deep End music video, I spent days shooting and editing 2 completely different concepts that didn’t work. I asked my mum to help out with a photo concept and pour milk into the bath for this shot, she thought it was stupid idea and poured it over my head laughing. It ended up being the album cover and the inspiration for the music video”

Sydney Children’s Choir performs ‘The Letter’ at Rouse Hill Estate, Sydney Living Museums

‘The Letter’ by Samuel Lover (1797-1868) is a song that was discovered in a large collection of sheet music at Sydney Living Museums’ Rouse Hill Estate, in north-western Sydney. It was one of over forty printed music pieces that had been bound together in a single volume in around 1840. Individually purchased in Sydney in the 1830s, the pieces represented the playlist of a young wealthy couple, Lilias and Willoughby Dowling. How this volume of music ended up at Rouse Hill Estate we do not know, but we suspect it has been there for well over a century.

Originally written for voice and piano, ‘The Letter’ was arranged for the Sydney Children’s Choir by composer Jessica Wells as a two-part choral work for 22 voices and accompanied by piano and violin. The choir rehearsed and made an audio recording under the direction of Lyn Williams before visiting Rouse Hill Estate for filming.

Making its premiere as part of Make Music Day, this performance was filmed prior to COVID-19 restrictions.

It is designed to raise money for the SA State Emergency Relief Fund. Hope you like.

What Happens When 350 Musicians Meet For The First Time In Brooklyn?

We at NPR Music leave a lot of variables out in the wild when we make Field Recordings. That’s especially true when we commission new music for the annual Make Music New York festival, as we have for three years.

Since we’re not using a traditional stage and people are roaming around, we don’t know exactly what the performance will sound like (though we’re lucky to work with fantastic engineering colleagues). It’s always held outdoors, and we can’t be sure what the weather will be.

And in two of these three years — the first and this one — we’ve flung the doors open and invited anyone who wanted to perform to come play alongside professionals. Pretty risky, right?

But what we’ve found, and what is so incredibly gratifying, is that amazingly talented and generous people join in — this year, about 350 of them on the steps of the Brooklyn Public Library. With a new piece by Sunny Jain of Red Baraat, the beat and the heart were there already, but the spirit burst to life when all those musicians came out to play.

Greenhand Band (Live from TAFE NSW Eora College Theatre)

Poverty, racism and inequality are cornerstone concepts Redfern-based reggae fusion group Green Hand Band aims to break down barriers about. Drawing musical influences from soul, reggae and desert rock genres, the group uses music to raise awareness of issues such as recovering from addiction, spiritual empowerment, love and social justice. Key writer, keyboard player and vocalist, Tim Gray leads the band bringing an infectious passion to the stage.

The Gumbaynggir/Wiradjuri man born in Macksville, NSW, and growing up in East Hills along the Georges River, Tim was influenced by the likes of Bob Marley, Warumpi Band and Coloured Stone. He started playing piano at his foster mother’s prompting and the music grabbed a hold of him; he started writing his own songs and playing in bands. “I want to make music that heals, that breaks down barriers and explores the human condition,” Tim says

The Greenhand Band are graduates from TAFE NSW EORA college Performance course. They are performing four original tracks as part of Make Music Day 2020.

* Barraminya, * Getting Warmer, * Water is Life, * Second Nature

Goodbye To Nashvile

Suzanne Petersen is a published award-winning songwriter and vocalist/pianist. A bit of folk, a bit of pop, a lot of blues and roots and a bit of the jazz chanteuse.   Her last two albums got recognition in the Australian Radio Blues and Roots charts and she has recorded 10 more originals “Our Street” to be released.  Suzanne has recorded with Tim Gaze for the surf movie “Band On the Run”, toured with Dutch Tilders RnB6 as flautist and backing vocalist and more recently gigs and festivals in Victoria such as the Eltham Jazz Food & Wine Festival with her band.

Suzanne took a trip for the first time to New Orleans in 2018 and this song was written on the Amtrak line from New Orleans to Memphis, then she got the bus to Nashville as the song says.  Suzanne was in a New Orleans when Aretha Franklin died and it was a resounding experience.

I know why

‘I know why’ is the lead track from Rock Farm Road‘s debut album ‘Light my Way’ released independently by Paul and Danielle Kneipp In November 2019. The album has ten uplifting songs played by excellent Sydney musicians Rex Goh, Jeffrey Bartolomei, and Mark Costa. This song is about watching the love in your family grow.

If I Give My Heart To You?

This is a short and sweet statement of commitment (though asked as a question) recorded at Woodstack Studios, on the South Coast of NSW on a Kawai grand. It’s the top download from my Soundcloud music website (stevecrumpmusic.com) so I guess some people like it – hope you do too.

IN THE DEEP END

Electronic music artist Jamie Lee Wilson aka JVMIE watched the pandemic loom over her LA-based life. After much deliberation, and seeing lines down the block from local gun stores, she returned to Australia. Where some may have found the experience overwhelming, for Jamie it led to the creation of an entire album, most of which was written and recorded during her time in quarantine.

With the help of a mini-grant from Home of the Arts on the Gold Coast, Jamie was able to collaborate with musical counterparts on the other side of the world.

JVMIE collaborated remotely with LA based film composer, Lionel Cohen fusing elements of electronic music with cinematic textures. The isolation project involved some serious ‘outside the box’ creativity, at one point even milk was involved.

“For the In The Deep End music video, I spent days shooting and editing 2 completely different concepts that didn’t work. I asked my mum to help out with a photo concept and pour milk into the bath for this shot, she thought it was stupid idea and poured it over my head laughing. It ended up being the album cover and the inspiration for the music video”

Sydney Children’s Choir performs ‘The Letter’ at Rouse Hill Estate, Sydney Living Museums

‘The Letter’ by Samuel Lover (1797-1868) is a song that was discovered in a large collection of sheet music at Sydney Living Museums’ Rouse Hill Estate, in north-western Sydney. It was one of over forty printed music pieces that had been bound together in a single volume in around 1840. Individually purchased in Sydney in the 1830s, the pieces represented the playlist of a young wealthy couple, Lilias and Willoughby Dowling. How this volume of music ended up at Rouse Hill Estate we do not know, but we suspect it has been there for well over a century.

Originally written for voice and piano, ‘The Letter’ was arranged for the Sydney Children’s Choir by composer Jessica Wells as a two-part choral work for 22 voices and accompanied by piano and violin. The choir rehearsed and made an audio recording under the direction of Lyn Williams before visiting Rouse Hill Estate for filming.

Making its premiere as part of Make Music Day, this performance was filmed prior to COVID-19 restrictions.

What Happens When 350 Musicians Meet For The First Time In Brooklyn?

We at NPR Music leave a lot of variables out in the wild when we make Field Recordings. That’s especially true when we commission new music for the annual Make Music New York festival, as we have for three years.

Since we’re not using a traditional stage and people are roaming around, we don’t know exactly what the performance will sound like (though we’re lucky to work with fantastic engineering colleagues). It’s always held outdoors, and we can’t be sure what the weather will be.

And in two of these three years — the first and this one — we’ve flung the doors open and invited anyone who wanted to perform to come play alongside professionals. Pretty risky, right?

But what we’ve found, and what is so incredibly gratifying, is that amazingly talented and generous people join in — this year, about 350 of them on the steps of the Brooklyn Public Library. With a new piece by Sunny Jain of Red Baraat, the beat and the heart were there already, but the spirit burst to life when all those musicians came out to play.

Wilhelm, Marina Zarya; Special Thanks: Make Music New York, Brooklyn Public Library, Red Baraat, Mark and Rachel Dibner of the Argus Fund, our many volunteers and all the participating musicians; Executive Producer: Anya Grundmann
