DFEi Student Manages Release of Compilation Album - Workshop Two
DFEi student Martin Eastwood is not only one of two mangers of DFEi Music but also the project manger for Workshop Two, which is currently at number 24 in the midweek chart predictions.
Martin worked with young musicians from the Finglas Youth Resource Centre to form a music collaboration group and record an album. They made an impressive pitch to Starbucks, involving live performance. Starbucks liked what they saw and a grant of €1,000 was awarded. Finally, after months of hard work and creativity, the complete album Workshop Two was released on Friday 1st November on CD and iTunes. The group is now aiming for a top 20 hit in the Irish Charts.
Speaking about the release, Project Manager Martin Eastwood said: "The young people have worked hard to produce this album. It contains some very good songs and I hope the public get behind it to give the group the chart hit that they deserve."
