"The band, made up of guitarist Malcolm Brickhouse, 13, bassist Alec Atkins, 13, and drummer Jarad Dawkins, 12, was founded in 2007 and has been riding the lightning to metal fame thanks to a steady run of heavy-beyond-their-years busking in Times Square and Washington Square Park . Now the Daily News reports that the boys have finalized a deal with Sony that could net them as much as $1.7 million over a possible 6 albums.”


We all know that music education can improve your quality of life, but the Brooklyn metal band Unlocking the Truth has taken it to the next level through talent and determination.

“In general, the elements of music travel in the brain differently than just verbal commands,” she said. “But when you pair things with rhythm, rhythm cues your motor cortex in your brain to fire more efficiently, so that your muscles fire more efficiently and appropriately, and it has the ability to bypass disease and injury.”

An unfortunate barrier to music education can be the cost of attaining an instrument - the DoSo fretted violin is a product with a goal to create a great sounding and inexpensive electric violin so that violinists, especially young violinists, have more opportunities and places to play. Check out their Kickstarter - it’s a great idea!

Anonymous said: What does the line "Give music life" mean to this foundation?

Thank you for asking!

To our foundation, “Give Music Life” means more than just receiving instruments from donors.  It is about being able to give these instruments to organizations and schools that may not otherwise be able to get them, due to budget cuts and the like.  We think that music is truly important for education and therapeutic benefits, and it is hard to see art and music programs be the first to get cut in a budget crisis.

We hope that by providing instruments to these individuals we can keep the joy of music alive for our current and future generations.
