In the spirit of unity, collaboration, and community, a fusion of musical inspiration was born and bred from both coasts. With influences on the album ranging from such diverse backgrounds as Demi Lovato, Harry Connick Jr., Afghan Whigs, Dr. John, Jason Derulo, Bonerama, The Screamers, NOLA Preservation Hall, etc., our goal was to create a special collaborative experience from within the artistic communities. Through some unique covers of timeless classics, layered with the musicianship, history, and grit of NOLA, and topped with the catchy and savvy top 40 production from the LA music scene, “They All Died” was born starting with their first album “Reunion”.
Presented by The Vortex and onelove, our community arts centers that support individuals, groups, or organizations who seek to raise awareness on issues they think are important to a better community, we decided to celebrate the opening of onelove by creating an album expressing the vision of our two venues.
onelove (opened in November of 2016 in NOLA) and The Vortex (founded in 2008 in LA) are privately funded philanthropic ventures with a focus on community and unity. Like The Vortex, onelove has a purpose to allow visiting residents to experience the City of New Orleans with its rich culture and deep roots which are the very origins of some of our truly American art forms. We invite all participants to think of solutions in a long-term model of sustainability and community arts programs.
“Reunion” was released in August of 2016, and is available in all digital retailers and streaming sites. All proceeds will be donated to onelove and The Vortex, and distributed back into the community.
