This post is part of the RealJams Academy Featured Band of the Week, highlighting students and bands from the area's premier summer music program! 

Learn Something by Shrink, featuring:

Vocals: Julia (13), Keys: Ethan (15), Guitar: Alexander (13), Drums: Derek (18) 

The story

This song was written on the second day of camp. Ethan came up with a chord progression, Julia wrote the lyrics with help from Alexander. Derek contributed some mighty fine drum arranging as well as the triplet hits coming out of the bridge. Alexander rocked the clean guitars and contributed greatly to the overall aesthetic of the group.

This song draws inspiration from pop with some slight R&B influences and features some vocal pyrotechnics from Julia. Enjoy!
