THE EXTENDED FAMILY

 

When we started The Family Crest we were not looking at the project as a band, but rather a one-time recording project. We’ve always loved collaborating with people, so the initial intent was to work with as many of our friends and fellow performers as possible and lock everyone down in one place. We sent out emails and posted on various social sites asking if anyone wanted to be involved, and while we thought we’d get maybe 10 responses, we ended up with over 100 people on our first record. A few months into the recording process these collaborators began to ask us when they’d be able to see the music live. It was then that we decided to actually start a band, and in that The Family Crest wouldn’t exist without our Extended Family of artists. So many things have come out of this collaboration. We’ve been able to work with musicians of all cultures, styles, and levels. Liam literally learned how to compose by discussing music and instruments with these various players. The journey with these wonderful musicians has been humbling and life-changing. In the end, this collaboration is in many ways what fuels the fire within our band, and we encourage anyone that is interested to join the family. We’ve had every level of player on our records, from shower crooners to symphony members to various members of our favorite bands, so don’t be shy. Come join The Family!
