ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Buy Great Independent Local Music and Help Support The Deep Roots Music Project for Youth Now!!!

Bart Ferguson, Ryan Andrews, Kris Kirkman, Colorfield, Rob Stroup, Stephanie Schneiderman, Tom Grant, Breanna Paletta, and more.

The Deep Roots project features some of Portland, Oregon's finest musicians who, for the ninth year in a row, have teamed up with a group of high school students to put out a powerful 20 song CD.

In order to create this compilation, titled "Deep Roots 9," the song writers visited a high school classroom and taught a writing workshop for the students; sharing the tricks of their trade. Then the young writers tried their own hand at lyric writing. Eventually, the musicians took the young writers' words and turned them into these songs.

The high-schoolers not only wrote the lyrics, but helped design the CD cover, took photographs, wrote press-releases, maintained an awesome web site (deeproots.com), and coordinated an annual CD release concert.

The music is great, and all proceeds from the CDs' sale go back into the project's production costs. Along the way, students learn that hard work and perseverance pay off, and they also discover that their voices are powerful and their ideas, worthwhile.

That all adds up to make this project one of the coolest around. Want to help? All you have to do is buy a great CD at a bargain price. Enjoy.

The BEST Deep Roots CD EVER!!!
I was so happy to have had the opportunity to work on this cd project. It was an amazing experience and the CD turned out awesome! It is by far the best Deep Roots cd done so far and I'm not just saying that because I worked on it.
