This project was birthed in the midst of a pandemic. At such times, just the opportunity to create art is a huge gift. This cadre of singers came together with the encumbrance of travel, limited rehearsal time, having to sing in masks—and dug deep to create this body of work. I will forever be an admirer of their collective strength.
The purpose of this recording is simple. It is our sincere hope that peace can be found despite all the chaos around us—COVID-19, social maladies, floods, fires, and the more. We the members of the Jason Max Ferdinand Singers bring you SOLACE.
