Deep Roots 10 carries on the collaborative tradition of The Deep Roots Music Project (www.deeproots.com), which started as a desperate high school English teacher's attempt to engage his students in writing and poetry.
Adolescent writers pen the lyrics. The Portland music scene's best musicians perform the songs.
Since 1998, over 300 musicians have volunteered their time to bring young voices to life in over 200 recorded songs.
This edition includes great performances by Breanna Paletta, Scotland Barr and the Slow Drags, Ezekiel Goodrick, Duffy Bishop, Kris Kirkman, The Kathy Walker Band, Jenn Dashney, Chris Mayther, Shane Records, and several others.
Each CD sale helps support this Portland tradition.
