More Music Less Violence
After the pandemic took hold in 2020, the Capital Region saw a significant uptick in violence. More than 30 people were killed in Albany alone in 2020 and 2021.
As the community was reeling from these tragedies and local authorities struggled to address the mounting problem, a local DJ and music promoter had an idea to create a safe space and encourage creativity in the areas hardest hit by the violence.
On this episode of "The Eagle," DJ Hollyw8d talks about putting together the "More Music Less Violence" performance series, and why he believes the region is brimming with promising talent in the music industry.
