Mother Christmas

Remember our friend J.S. Ondara who filmed a video for his song “Mother Christmas” in our chapel back in November? A few newsletters ago we shared pictures from the filming, and now we present the video!

2017 Jameson Music Partnership

Refuge Foundation for the Arts partnered with Jameson Music to support 10 emerging artists across the country through access to coaching from established musicians, music distribution, financial support, and live performances. The artists included: HoneyHoney, Eve & The Exiles, The London Souls, J-Council, Kristin Diable, Cha Wa, Valerie June, Robert Ellis, Pickwick, and Julia Haltigan. With all artists combined, this partnership resulted in: 500 vinyl records pressed, 500 CDs printed, 6 live or music videos, 5 U.S. and International tours, 3 full length albums funded, 2 promotional photo shoots, 1 single recorded, 1 radio campaign, and 1 stage backdrop. We are so thankful for our partners, and recommend you take a look at what these artists have accomplished this year!
