It's been a while since EoJ has actively supported any crowdfunding projects. This one is interesting to me and I want Sylvain Picard to have a successful campaign! As most of us have realized over the years, music worth supporting isn't really being played to the masses on radio. The record labels that are left are still all about pushing and plugging artists that fit a certain look or a stereotype.
Fans can truly make a distinct difference in the lives of musicians more and more these days. Please consider pledging funds to Sylvain's project hightlighted in this blog post. Click here to go directly to the fundraising page for Gloria where you'll find different levels to pledge and the perks! I also encourage you all to go OUT and SEE LIVE MUSIC!!
The Origins of Gloria
Sylvain shares his thoughts about this project:
Gloria is Is a jazz mass, a sacred music, which essence is to celebrate humanity. Played by four seasoned jazzmen, Gloria proposes a contrasted fraternal experience.
Originally, Gloria was written as a jazz mass commissioned by Gesù Church (Montréal, Canada) which premiere was celebrated on July 6th 2013.
