Creativity Prompted By The Election Result
Talented and enterprising singer/songwriter Nancy Kells felt compelled to contact us directly after the Presidential election results came in, “I’m very, very worried!” she said, “this feels like a bad dream. How is it possible for a misogynist-race-baiting-bullying-con-man be President of the country I love?” Nancy was expressing the outrage felt by many, especially in the creative community. But, instead of moaning and groaning, Nancy Kells believes in action. So, she enlisted the help and partnership of Fox Food Records’ James Smith and together they curated a magnificent compilation album with an amazing array of musical artists from across a wide spectrum of styles. The resulting album, Friends For Equality will feature over forty tracks with all the proceeds going to aid, Southern Poverty Law Center, Planned Parenthood, and ACLU. This is not just a labor of love, it’s serious endeavor to employ creative abilities to benefit organizations Nancy & James believe could be threatened by the new administration. In upcoming editions of Life Elsewhere and Life Elsewhere Music we will play selections from Friends For Equality.
