All My Sons
A collaborative music recording and video project by THE SPINNING BOY
All My Sons is a collection of songs and accompanying films inspired by and honouring the lives and work of young male musicians and artists who have prematurely passed away or suffer from mental ill-health.
It is a collaboration between THE SPINNING BOY (Marc-Ivan O’Gorman) and various artists who had connections with the celebrated artists. The songs will be a mixture of newly-penned compositions and pieces written by the honoured artists.
Development, production, and publicisation of the project should facilitate a conversation that promotes men’s health. The project will be launched on June 19 on International Men’s Health Day.
The ‘album’ will be available in a limited edition physical format (a record) and as a digital download. The videos will be accessible via Youtube & Vimeo and shareable via social media.
A musical performance by the contributors, accompanied by film screenings, will occur in a public venue in Carlow, Ireland, on November 2021 to celebrate the release of the finished project.
The profits from the sale of the finished work will go to The Men’s Health Forum Ireland (MHFI), a charitable organization that seeks to promote all aspects of the health and well-being of men and boys on the island of Ireland through research, education, training, health initiatives, networking, and awareness-raising.
All My Sons project is the recipient of an Arts Act Grant 2021 from Carlow County Council Arts Office. And supported by The National Centre for Men’s Health
