It goes without saying that 'Shelter In Place - A Future Classic Compilation' arose from the current times and COVID19 pandemic. We wanted to release great music from emerging artists during these challenging times.
We've had to put the Studio Residency at Future Classic on pause for now, but we realized over 700 applications from talented musicians around the globe were sitting there waiting for an opportunity. We combed through all of them and picked out a handful of our favorites which became the ethos of this 'Shelter In Place' compilation.
There are so many artists navigating this time in such a genius, creative way, and without adding too much noise, we wanted to flag seven up-and-comers we’re excited about and the work they’ve put together in these unprecedented times. The release includes MariaDennis (Amsterdam, Netherlands), Angus1 (Sydney, Australia), The Blossom (Los Angeles, USA), mwami (Kampala, Uganda), Madge (Los Angeles, USA), Jalopy Bungus (Phoenix, USA), and Late Night Messages (Oklahoma City, USA).
Future Classic will donate their portion of the first month’s sales towards Heartland Alliance, a charity dedicated to providing emergency funds to marginalized communities most affected by the ongoing pandemic.
