Alchemy Sky Foundation 2021 Fundraiser
ASF's 2021 fundraiser will support our Veterans Music Project. Our ongoing VMP walks small groups of Veterans through the process of writing and recording original songs. Our VMP meets Veterans where they are musically and helps them express and process their experiences with writing exercises, music education and vocal rehearsals. We hire Veterans in the music industry to coach them in the process. Studio musician tracks serve as a musical base upon which we build the songs. The Veterans have input every step of the way. During the 14th week we go into a professional recording studio to record. We release two songs and two corresponding music videos every 14 weeks.
"...writing about it helps to get the feelings out, the emotions out, and then when you have other people listening to it and they feel the same way about it, then you kind of feel vindicated that you have a reason for feeling the way you feel..." Kimia Flournoy - U.S. Marine Corps
"... it allows me to express my writing skills as well as my love for music and wrap it up in this nice ball of therapy." ...it was an outlet for me to create and get in touch with my feelings I may not have known were there and put them in a way that hopefully other people could connect to..."
