Soul-jazz trio members put feelings about earthquake victims into a new composition
Victoria’s Skyla J and the Vibes have teamed with local producer Joby Baker on a heartfelt song written to aid with disaster relief in Japan.
The song’s co-writer Leon Nagasaki, who is of Japanese descent, said the idea behind providing it for free was to allow groups raising money for earthquake relief to use it in their promotional material.
“When we saw all the devastation and suffering from the quake, we imagined how hopeless the people must have felt,” said Skyla J. “We wanted to send them a message they are not alone.”
