Non-profit organizations Future Youth Records and Mission Girls Services – a program of Mission Neighborhood Centers – are excited to debut a song and music video created through the Future Youth Records’ V.I.N.Y.L. (Voice for Inspiring & Nurturing Youth Leadership) Program – a partnership program that provides at-risk youth the opportunity to create broadcast quality media alongside high profile music industry professionals that contain positive, impactful messages. Four Mission Girls ages 10 to 19 began work during Women’s History Month in March alongside professional musicians Matt “Doctor” Fink (Prince & The Revolution), Adam “A+” Carter (The Hieroglyphics), Eva Gardner (Pink, Cher) and Thia Megia (American Idol) inside of Studio Trilogy, a state of the art recording facility in San Francisco’s SOMA District. Under the direction of FYR’s Founder/Executive Director, Jason Wall, and co-producer/engineer Willie Samuels, “We Are The Women...” was written and recorded by the girls over four days. It features strong lyrics and an anthemic chorus composed by the young women to counteract the growing problem of female degradation in much of today’s music media. The girls completed an accompanying music video under the direction of Justin Herman to reflect their song’s empowering message and to offer youth in San Francisco a positive alternative to the overwhelming quantity of media that perpetuates harm towards women.
