Other Voices, Other Rooms is a 5-song EP that is a collection of songs written and recorded by Philly-based band, The Great Unknown and American SCORES kids from DC, Cleveland, Milwaukee, NYC and Boston as part of the ASCAP Songwriter Residency @ America SCORES program. But what's special about this program is the fact that it is a music education program that teaches kids about music and hopefully inspires their interest in it!
The program is funded by The ASCAP Foundation, in which brings emerging to Grammy-winning ASCAP songwriters into American SCORES after-school programs in underserved neighborhoods to engage and inspire elementary and middle school students. From learning the structure of a song, the differences between a melody, chorus and bridge to taking their newly written masterpiece to a top tier recording studio to track and enjoy the song from start to finish.

The name-your-own-price CD contains five original songs, all the lyrics of which were written by America SCORES students, arranged by and music by The Great Unknown. The disc will be available July 19, 2011. The Great Unknown is donating all proceeds from online sales to the ASCAP Songwriter Residency @ America SCORES program.
