“Watching the wave of gun violence spread across our country and into our schools is difficult and we’re all faced with the question – ‘What can I do.’ We wanted to do something to support the great organization, Everytown for Gun Safety, so we commissioned some of New York’s finest composers and asked our favorite singers to record an 11 track album inspired by the stories and survivors of gun violence in our schools. We hope this collection of original music will help bring awareness and support to this crucial movement. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we’ve enjoyed creating So Much To Say.” – Michael Croiter (album producer).
