When was the last time you sang out loud? Were you alone? Were you at a show? In the shower? With one hundred strangers in a record store recording a track?
Recently my pal Robin invited me to Playground. I was intrigued with their description “Take one band, one audience, and give them one challenge. Create a song together, and then record it. In less than an hour.” For a gal who appreciates music, beer and singing in the shower, I thought, why not? Plus, the band was Bend Sinister, a group who creates some of the best sing along songs.
Here is the result:
Today we’ll hear from Adam Schelle co-founder of Playground. We’ll get the story behind the concept, and what it’s like to get one hundred strangers and a band to record a song together in harmony. We’ll also hear from Bend Sinister who can share the band’s perspective.
