All Ears Music
Below is a selection of songs created as part of the ‘All Ears Music Productions‘ Outreach Songwriting Program in which Tam worked with young people from some of the most disadvantaged areas of Edinburgh to create pop music. Young people not only created music that they wanted to play to their friends, learning new skills in writing and studio production. They also benefited from the confidence building, therapeutic and community aspects of lyric writing and music making.
