BLM & Black Health Initiative Leeds Fundraiser
presented on Facebook by Eiger Studios and Alex Robinson.
The fundraiser will bring together some of the finest musicians from Leeds’ diverse music scene for a recording on the 4th of July, culminating in an album to raise funds and spread awareness for Black Lives Matter and the Black Health Initiative.
The project, led by bassist Alex Robinson and Jack Simpson, aims to draw attention to what is happening around the world to the Black and Minority Ethnic community through writing music and raise funds for BME causes, as well as provide an inclusive space for local musicians to record music and release a charity EP.
The project includes local musicians such as guitarist Conall Mulvenna (New Position, Connell & Co.), spoken word artist Adekola (Say It With Your Chest) drummer James Robinson, saxophonist Ben Powling (Vipertime, Mansion of Snakes) and rap artist Marnz. With more artists to be announced, the album will aim to showcase the talent and diversity of Leeds’ music scene.
