David Uosikkinen’s In The Pocket: The Essential Songs of Philadelphia is an amazing project that we’ve been involved with as our corporate charity initiative since day one. It’s quite brilliant in its simplicity: take an ever evolving group of legendary musicians from Philadelphia, have them re-record iconic songs with ties to Philadelphia and donate the proceeds to a really worthy Philadelphia based non-profit like The Settlement Music School. In support of the music add in Philadelphia’s best in public relations, photography and visual storytelling to get the word out…we’re excited to be involved as a project partner.
All songs are jut 99¢ and are available on iTunes. So far we have recorded 6 tracks:
All My Mondays (feat. David Uosikkinen, Eric Bazilian, Richard Bush, Greg Davis, Rob Hyman & William Wittman)
Open My Eyes (feat. David Uosikkinen, Eric Bazilian, Rick Difonzo, Jeffrey Gaines, Rob Hyman & William Wittman)
