"When The Lights Come On Again" song and video released to benefit Cleveland Rocks, Past, Present and Future
On Friday, Feb. 12th, 2021, the song and accompanying video for "When The Lights Come On Again" was released. It completes a long journey for co-collaborators Brent Kirby and Ariel Karas (Opus 216). The idea was hatched in April of 2020 with the purpose of directing fundraising for the Cleveland music scene and venues, with the active non-profit Cleveland Rocks, Past Present and Future the recipient. Led by Kirby and Karas, the song was written collaboratively over email by 18 songwriters and musicians, who all wrote and videoed their unique parts for the song, which were then put together cohesively by Kirby and studio engineer Jim Stewart. The completed song was mastered by Adam Boose of Cauliflower Audio, and the video edited by Goldfarb Weber Creative Media.
The goal was to create a fundraising tool for Cleveland Rocks, Past, Present & Future, and to spotlight Cleveland's diverse music scene, culture and independent music venues.
