A strong sense of community is fundamental to me when it comes to arts development. When artists bring their work together, along with a pile of brilliance, competitiveness and critical comparison surface. This is one of the many reasons I was, and will continue doing, compilation albums of some nature. The project I currently have on my brain is an all-locals covers album. The concept is for a handful of bands/artists to draw each other’s name from a hat and record a cover of one song from that group or artist’s catalog. I feel the participants should have creative freedom to shape the piece in anyway they see fit and to have a pile of fun in the process.
