Family and Friends music collaboration will aid Samaritans

A Whitby musician has just completed a major collaboration project – a 40-track album.

Friday, 15th May 2020, 10:42 am
The 40-track album Family and Friends was recorded by Oli Knight.

Oli Knight, who performs as Owl, asked as many people as possible to send a one to two minute clip of them playing an instrument or using their voice via social media.

The music was then recorded between Saturday, April 4 to Wednesday, May 6.

The work is in memory of Oli’s friend Alex Winspear who died in 2011.

Oli said: “Alex had this idea when we were at college together, recording music with as many people as he could.

“He was an incredible musician and I always admired his lack of judgement and ability to work with anyone out of a pure love for music.

“He never got the chance to go ahead with his plan so I’m carrying on this vision.”

People can listen to the music at https://owlll7.bandcamp.com/album/family-friends.

The album is free but any donations from the project will go to the Samaritans.
