Music

“I believe in music the way some people believe in fairy tales.” – August Rush

We believe that music is a safe place and greatly helps the healing process.  There are three ways your band can contribute to our community:

AWARENESS SHOWS:
Once a month we host a night of conversation and music featuring three local bands.  If you’re interested in having your band participate in one of our shows or would like to host one of your own, please send an email to amanda@openoureyes.org.

BRACELETS:
We have new Open Our Eyes bracelets specifically for bands.  The bracelets are FREE for bands who are willing to commit to wearing them daily and spreading our message at every opportunity.  If your band is interested in receiving bracelets, please send an email to annemarie@openoureyes.org.

MERCH AT YOUR SHOWS:
Bands can sell our merchandise at their shows.  This can be a one time event or you can partner with us to sell our merch regularly.  For more information, please send an email to annemarie@openoureyes.org.

VIDEO PROJECT:
The idea behind this video project is to let people know they’re not alone, that we’re all broken people, but at the end of the day, we’re still here because our lives are worth this battle.  The lesson is in the struggle, not the victory.  We also want to emphasize the important role music plays in this battle.  We’re asking bands to make a video no longer than 5 minutes stating the name of your band and 1-2 sentences about your music, then answering the following question: How have you or someone you know been affected by depression, suicide, self injury, addiction, etc?  Then at the end of the video, we’re asking everyone to say: 4 out of 5 teens who attempt suicide give clear warning signs.  It’s time for us to open our eyes.  Send videos or questions to annemarie@openoureyes.org.

“With the door closed, you turn on your stereo. Someone is singing about problems just like yours. They’re not commenting on them, not judging them, just echoing them, making them real, validating them. You sing along and the tears dry up… you are anything but alone.” – Andy Greenwald
