MAKING MUSIC THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER : JEFF CHANDLER
"LET ME MAKE THE SONGS OF A NATION, I DON'T CARE WHO WRITES IT'S LAWS!"
-- Andrew Fletcher
Music is arguably one of the most influential forces in existence. It has the power to shape the mind and heart and even the reality of the listener. For better or worse, our culture is impacted by our adoption of ideologies passed to us by the media: the music and film we entertain ourselves with. You don't have to look too hard to make the observation that a wide variety of media is being created that not only mentions destructive lifestyles but celebrates and promotes them. And we wonder at the troubles of our times. Too many times we turn on the news to hear that there's another in the industry shot down, locked up or OD'd? There has to be a recognition of what are and what aren't acceptable and healthy expressions of our art. What elevates our culture and what tears it down.
EMERGE is a growing family of influencers that are endeavoring to build a better future by building a creative culture full of healthy people: body, mind and spirit. We use our creativity to heal, support and serve the "Invisible Class": the addicted, the homeless and the incarcerated. We hope you'll stay tuned and connect with us to see what's possible in our world when we resist darkness together and share light!
