The Breed Street Rookies are comprised of Sound Art students ages 11 to 18 who came together with the intention of writing and recording original songs for this compilation. Under the guidance of their instructors Jeff Smith and Justin David, the Rookies learned the art of songwriting and composed the theme song "In This Together" as well as "One for All". Writing and rehearsing in an old synagogue on Breed Street in Boyle Heights, the group has gone on to play shows at the Heyday Media Group's Solstice Skyline series and a show at HM 157 in Lincoln Heights. They've worked for a year and they have developed a sound and an identity. This project was inspired by Renee Travis of Heyday Media Group who approached Sound Art with the idea of creating an ensemble with the goal of being part of a compilation recording.
