SPEAK SUPPORTS MUSIC FOR RELIEF

SPEAK SUPPORTS MUSIC FOR RELIEF

The band Speak expressed support for Music for Relief. The band joins other artists in this endeavor to help those who have been severely affected by disasters. The band has arranged different shows to be able to raise funds and a portion of their album sales will also go to Music for Relief. They also announced on their website that a portion of their profit from the purchases from their online store would go to Music for Relief. The band has been very active in their advocacy saying that this is the only way that they can reach out and help lessen the burden on those families who have been through a lot of trauma and pain. Music for Relief also makes sure that emergency responders are given proper care and compensation for all their efforts. This is another thing that Speak likes about Music for Relief. They say it is important to ensure the well-being not only of the survivors but also of the responders. The emergency responders play a very crucial part during disaster response. They put their lives on the line to be able to save as many people as possible. They have left the comforts of their homes and families to be one with those who have been affected by calamities. That is why they say that it is equally important to give assistance to survivors and responders. This advocacy is close to their heart since Texas has been hit with some major disasters in the past.

During the fast-moving wildfires in California, Music for Relief responded to the plight of thousands of people who were forced to evacuate from their homes. They also sent assistance to the firefighters who bravely went to the rescue to put out the fire and rescue the families. Speak encourages their fans to support their fundraising campaign for Music for Relief.

GOING ON TOUR

GOING ON TOUR

Going on a tour is a whole lot of fun. We get to meet different people in and out of the industry. From our humble beginnings in Austin, Texas, we have traveled all over the United States to perform for our supporters. We get to perform on stage with bands that we look up to and have now become our friends in the industry. We have the opportunity to work with so many talented artists and even start collaborations for future work. We get to sing our songs in front of different crowds. It is a pleasure to be able to share your music with others. Seeing the fans singing along to your songs is a different kind of happiness. It instantly connects you with those people using the universal language of music. We never thought we would get this far, literally and figuratively. What started out as just 4 friends trying out different instruments in a backyard in Austin, Texas has now become a band phenomenon known as the Speak. It gives us the chills as we look back on those days and thinking about our younger years. We definitely never thought we would be going on tour to play our music in front of large crowds. We used to be happy just to perform at our school. Yes, going on tour helps put things in perspective for every member of the band. We learn to appreciate what we have now and what we have been through as a band. It also helps a lot that we have been friends since we were young because going on tour can be stressful at times. But since we are friends, we know each other’s moods and quirks and we know how to turn things around when things get tough. Hope to see you during one of our stops!

THE MAKING OF THE BAND

THE MAKING OF THE BAND

It all started with 4 high school friends who had a profound love for music. They wanted to explore different rhythm and sounds until they found where they were best at. They started with some hip-hop and rap. They also tried rhythm and blues. But the genre that they have decided to focus on was synthpop since they say they have fallen in love with the sound of the synthesizer and wanted to incorporate its sound in all of their music. It also made their music distinct. It set them apart from their peers who formed their own bands and copied the music of their favorite performers.

However, the making of the band was not as easy as it sounds. It was difficult especially when they were starting out. They had different things going on in their lives – studies, family, relationships, and other interests. But alas, their love for music prevailed. They made a decision to pursue a career in music, enhancing their musical knowledge and skills. They did not just form their own band and started performing to see where it would lead them. They were serious about their craft. Their passion for music led them to pursue further studies about anything and everything in the music industry. Everything paid off when they won their first award during the Austin Music Award where they were recognized as the Best New Band. And there was no looking back from there. Their career took off and brought them to different places. They say performing on stage always gives them a natural high. They signed a contract with Playing in Traffic Records and has since then recorded 2 studio albums, 2 Eps, and 4 singles. They were also hailed as the Best Indie Group. Now, Speak is poised to make more waves in the music industry.
