What would happen if you asked a group of children to write the lyrics for some songs, and then asked a bunch of adult musicians to write and record music to go with the lyrics? That’s the premise for the brilliant album Share More Air, released jointly by the Ministry of Stories (read more about my involvement with them here) and Communion Records. It features lyrics from children aged 8-13 from east London, and music from artists including Ben Folds, Matthew and the Atlas, and Marcus Foster.
It’s a genuinely wonderful project, and the songs sound fantastic.
I designed the CD book and art directed the microsite for the album (built with skill and speed by Alex Wybraniec).
