I have spent the last two Fridays in a young offenders institute just outside Derby. I am lucky enough to be involved in a musical project called ‘Lives and Lyrics’.
The idea of the project is to take stories from different areas of society, and put them into song. Other musicians are with different communities across the County. At the end of the project, we will release an album and tour the songs around the local area.
It has been an eye opening experience, and now I need to put pen to paper and do these kids justice.
I will post updates and samples as they come!
