This fall, Spare The Rock Records will release Let All The Children Boogie: A Tribute To David Bowie, an all-ages album dedicated to the music and artistry of David Bowie. The album will feature new interpretations of his work from a diverse group of artists with the mission of sharing his legacy and messages with a new generation.
Proceeds from the record will benefit the It Gets Better Project and its mission to communicate to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth around the world that it gets better, and to create and inspire the changes needed to make it better for them. In short, It Gets Better works towards a world where all the children can boogie freely.
Talent confirmed for the project to date includes Jon Langford & Sally Timms (The Mekons, Wee Hairy Beasties), Rhett Miller (Old 97’s), Antibalas, Gina Chavez, Walter Martin (The Walkmen), Tracy Bonham & Uncle Rock, Wunmi, Elizabeth Mitchell, Justin Roberts, The Pop Ups with Gustafer Yellowgold, Red Yarn, Colin Brooks (Dan Zanes and Friends), Adam Levy & Chastity Brown, Nakia with the Barton Hills Choir, Molly Ledford & Dean Jones, Sonia De Los Santos & Elena Moon Park (Dan Zanes and Friends) and others to be announced at a later date.
David Bowie proved that there are no rules about who you should or could be in this world. His musical and artistic approach defined creative freedom. He lived a glowing life on his own terms, a shining example of the infinite possibilities out there. In addition to celebrating Bowie’s catalog and life’s work, the project introduces him to today’s kids. From “Kooks”, to his narration of Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf to his role in Labyrinth and his own role as a father, it seemed Bowie always knew that children were a different species and he welcomed them into his world.
Producers on the album include multi-Grammy nominee and winner Dean Jones, author and musician “Uncle Rock” Robert Burke Warren, Stephanie Mayers, publicist and marketing consultant of Mayers Consulting, and Bill Childs, owner of Spare The Rock Records and producer of nationally syndicated radio show Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child. Cover art will be created by popular children’s book illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka (Lunch Lady, Punk Farm).
